From one to one hundred -- Let's Count!


Author Notes

Tana Hoban was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has also lived in Holland and England. Hoban graduated from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia in 1938, and painted in Europe as a recipient of the John Frederick Lewis Fellowship. When she returned to Philadelphia, she worked as a free-lance advertising artist and magazine illustrator. By 1950 her work was included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and in 1953 she was the only woman mentioned in a Time magazine portfolio on "Half a Century of U.S. Photography." In 1959 she was named one of the Top Ten Women Photographers by the Professional Photographers of America.

Hoban worked as an instructor in photography at the Annenberg School of Communications at the University of Pennsylvania from 1966 to 1968. In 1967 she produced and filmed Catsup, an award-winning film which was shown at the Venice Film Festival. By 1955, she had written a book on photographing children, and in 1970 she combined her skills as a photographer with her interest in children to produce her first juvenile picture book, Shapes and Things. In 1973, Hoban served as project photographer for Beginning Concepts, a series of sound filmstrips produced by Scholastic Magazines, Inc. From 1974 to 1976 she taught photography at New York University.

As of 1990, five of her books had been listed as ALA Notables. She has received awards for her entire body of work three separate times. In 1991, she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from her alma mater, the Moore College of Art. Her works are included in the Kerlan Collection at the University of Minnesota and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, among other collections in both the United States and France.

Booklist Review

Ages 3^-6. Hoban brings us another dazzling picture book. This time she revisits the counting-concept form, enumerating objects from 1 to 15, then from 20 to 50 in tens, ending with 100. Her photos range from the simple--1 hen, 8 Dalmatian puppies--to the more sophisticated--6 twirling rings on the arms of a circus performer; 12 rolls of toilet paper, unpacked and stored on a pantry shelf; 20 mannequin heads, all sporting hats and sunglasses. There are 30 cookies, 50 brown eggs, and 100 spools of thread arranged in the order of the colors of the rainbow. Hoban's talent for taking everyday things and gloriously capturing them in her photos is what makes her books amazing; the pictures here appeal to all the senses and are at once accessible to children and an aesthetic pleasure for adults. --Helen Rosenberg


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2 Hoban has been looking through her camera's viewfinder for years, capturing in crisp black-and-white and vivid color photos everyday objects from new, innovative perspectives. Color, textures, sizes, opposites, and other ideas have flowed through her darkroom to create clear impressions. Here, she returns to numbers, inviting children to master counting from 1 to 15, and then, after jumping to 20, to leapfrog by 10s to 100. Each double-page spread is paired on the left by a huge yellow numeral, the word for the number in white uppercase, and row(s) of large white dots for reinforcement. On the right, is a stellar photo, framed in crisp white, of a corresponding accumulation of interesting objects, ranging from utilitarian rolls of paper towels to svelte mannequin heads modeling hats and sunglasses to a rainbow of colorful thread spools. A deep oceanic ultramarine provides a perfect background for photos, dots, numerals, and letters alike. Eye-catching and enjoyable from its front cover to its final page, and sure to be both as useful and used as its many predecessors.
