Product Description

About the Author

Laura Vaccaro Seeger is a New York Times best-selling author and illustrator and the recipient of a 2008 Caldecott Honor, Theodor Seuss Geisel Honors for both 2009 and 2008, a 2007 New York Times Best Illustrated Book Award, and the 2007 Boston Globe/Horn Book Award for Best Picture Book. Her books include First the Egg, The Hidden Alphabet, and Dog and Bear, among others.

Raised on Long Island, New York, Seeger began drawing at two years old and never stopped. For as long as she remembers, she wanted to write picture books. She received her B.F.A. degree at the School of Fine Art and Design at SUNY Purchase in Westchester, New York, and then moved to Manhattan, where she worked as an animator, artist, and editor in the network television business.

Seeger lives in Rockville Centre, Long Island, with her husband, Chris, their two sons, Drew and Dylan, and their dog, Copper. She loves painting, surfing, tennis, playing the piano, and spending time with her family. She takes long walks at the beach every day and paints in her studio every night.


“Laura Vaccaro Seeger proves herself a master of the concept book, once again combining text, art and design into a uniquely crafted ‘early reader'.” ―Philadelphia Parents Express

HASH(0xa21ec720) out of 5 stars Fun, creative, a True Delight! Jan. 6 2009
By Doug Bowker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Our two and half year old loves this book and it's been a favorite of my wife an I too. Each page has a clever cutout over the picture, which when turned reveals some fanciful addition to what the subject is. Example: 3 Apes, (you see their heads mostly) then turns to Big Escape, in which you see they happily got out of their cage. Each picture and number up to ten goes like this and all are quite fun for everyone. Beautiful production and printing quality too.

HASH(0xa1b76384) out of 5 stars Learning to read and count at the same time in one book for one boy Feb. 17 2009
By Itami Sou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This was an amazing book. I am teaching my grand son to read/count and learn English all in one book. Pictures are very good, all very memorable. Peek-a-boo aspect of the book appeals to the children. It is a real page turner for young children. Highly recommended.

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
One Boy is a great book for children and adults of all ages. One Boy is very simple but the way the illustrations are put down looks great. For example, for the number one it says one boy and when you turn the page it says all alone and the picture extends. Most of the pictures are animals. I would definitely recommend this book to children and adults.

HASH(0xa246af24) out of 5 stars Works even for those children who have outgrown the 'counting phase' May 27 2010
By utbtkids - Published on Amazon.com
Having two kids 18 months apart, my challenge is to find books that works well with both ages. I want to challenge my older one, while make the younger one participate without feeling inadequate. Few books like One Boy, appeals to them both.

While it functions as a basic counting book for my younger one, the clever windows in the book show how one word can be a part of another for my older one.

For example we see ONE on one page and when we turn the page, the window on the next page shows how ONE is a part of the word ALONE. So it is ONE BOY...ALL ALONE.

So even before she turned the pages, my older one was guessing what new word can be formed from this give word. Fun book.
HASH(0xa2408b3c) out of 5 stars Our Grandchildren love to be read to Dec 15 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Our Grandchildren love to be read to, and they either love to read, or acquiring such affection. Ms Seegers books are illustrated and written in such a manner to make you feel that this is her goal. From one generation to the next, to love learning because, although it is some times difficult, it is mostly fun, and words within words and words with multiple meanings make word games delectable. Thank you Ms. Seeger for writing for our Kids and GrandKIds, because now I get to read good books to them more often, and recently written. Al in rural NE
