Lately, our world seems meaner. There's an "Us and Them" mentality emanating from the top, with an institutional callousness toward anyone "different." At fourlosophy.com, we're saddened by what we see, and we've been wondering what we can do to help, so we were delighted when a local bookseller told us that she's been recommending our book more often "because our lesson on diversity is something children need to learn."
Yes, the most obvious topic of our book is the idea of Number Sense, that "Four" can be a little or a lot. But in demonstrating that, we also show that it's a little and a lot to all kinds of kids, and that all children share things in common. And our story ends with this diverse cast of characters gathering with the reader at a party, to celebrate turning four.
Well, we agree with our favorite bookseller: We need to build bridges, not walls. And what builds bridges better than getting kids together and celebrating?
So for the next four years, we're giving our book away!
That's right: It's free to read, right here on our home page. Read it, share it with your children, send the link to your friends. Give it away! Of course, we still have physical copies, and we hope you'll help share those, as well. After reading our book, below, we hope you'll consider these four reasons to buy an analog copy:
1. Kids should have real books that they can touch and hold, preferably while snuggling up someplace cozy with someone to read with them.
2. Too much screen time is bad for young children.
4. Your purchase will help support four charities which help children (as well as a writer, four artists, and a small, independent business!)
Thanks. Now please enjoy our book.
