“Two”, written by award winning author Kathryn Otoshi, is a beautifully simple, character-building children’s picture book about friendship, letting-go, self-discovery and growth. In her signature style using colors and numbers, this book tells the story of One and Two who were best friends until Three came along. Themes of being excluded, the loss of friendship, and making of new friends are weaved into this story.  Suitable for ages 4-6, this book can be used to stimulate thinking and discussion about inclusiveness, social aggression/bullying, friendship, and compromise, and aid in the fostering of social and emotional skills.
