Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury
This picture book, written by Phyllis Root and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, tells the story of the world as created by Big Momma, a no-nonsense character who keeps an eye on the world from above, occasionally saying, "Better straighten up down there!" but just as often, she looks down and says, "That's good. That's real good."

Zero is bummed because she's different and despite her efforts to stretch and straighten, twist and turn, she isn't like the other numbers. With little self-esteem, Zero believes she just doesn't count. Beautifully colored hand painted numbers can be big bullies until a pile-up forces zero through nine to take a look at value in a whole new way. With the help of their new friend Zero, the numbers find they can reach greater heights.
