A number/color book reminding us it just takes one to make everyone count.Topics covered: - Counting - Colors - Bullying - CourageBlue is a quiet color. Red's a hothead who likes to pick on Blue. Yellow, Orange, Green, and Purple don't like what they see, but what can they do? When no one speaks up, things get out of hand - until One comes along and shows all the colors how to stand up, stand together, and count. As budding young readers learn about numbers, counting, and primary and secondary colors, they also learn about accepting each other's differences and how it sometimes just takes one voice to make everyone count.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this book! Great book! I used it with my pre-school class and they loved it. The concept of bullying and inclusion is very clear and age appropriate for students in pre-school, as well as the early elementary school level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-read at any age. This is a great story. It tackles bullying from the victim's and the witness'point of view. It shows how power is taken and stopped. It allowed me as a parent to start this important conversation with my daughters without assigning blame. I will buy this for every single shower I will be invited to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully simple to understand This book is very simply put together, and that only adds to its beauty. My son is only 22 months old, but he already chooses this book above others for his bedtime story. The story gets the point across easily, in a wonderfully simple way. At the same time, my son is learning his colours and numbers! What a great book. I'd recommend it to everyone with a little one, and it should be mandatory reading for all kindergarten kids. Learn 'em young, and they'll remember forever, lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Book This is an absolutely amazing book... I was moved to tears by its poignancy. My son received the book for his 3rd birthday and I think the lessons it teaches are good lessons for the rest of his life. This is, perhaps, one of the best children's books I have ever read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A book for all ages!! I picked this book up and started flipping through it. I knew before finishing it that this book needed to come home with me. What an amazing book. SO many lessons all rolled into one book. They have this rated for 3-5 year olds, but even my 8 year old enjoyed it. The colors and numbers appeal to the younger ones, but the lesson on bullying applies to all. 3 it!!
