One Hundred is a Family by Pam Munoz Ryan

This book is a counting book as well as a book about families. The beautiful illustrations depict families of various shapes and sizes working together. As the numbers get larger (the books starts counting by tens after a while and goes up to 100) the author introduces the idea of neighborhoods, schools and teams being “families” working together towards a common goal. A great way to talk about communities and families and how even though they aren’t the same they do have some similarities.
