Zerowas big and round with no corners at all.

“If I were like One,

then I could count too!” she thought.

She pushed and pulled.

She stretched and straightened.

She flipped and turned and finally became...

Z e r o

She sighed. Becoming like One, was too much of a stretch.

“If you doubled yourself up,

you’d be like me!” said Eight.

So Zerotwisted and

turned to try to be Eight

“Or you could be a nine with a longer line!” said Nine.

So Zeropinched and puckered

to try to be like Nine.

“We’re on our way to join the others!” said Nine.

“Come count with us!” said Eight.

Zero felt deflated.

Eight and Nine were numbers with value.

Of course they’d count. How could they know how she felt?

If she could impress the other numbers,

that would give her value.

Sh’e leap, she’d soar, she’d sizzle, she’d shine.

She’d make a grand entrance

and floor them all!.

Zero began to spin.

And then spin faster.

0

And faster.

And faster.

And then she leaped into the air….

…right into One,

who knocked over Two,

who fell into Three and Four,

toppling over Five and Six,

who crashed into Seven and Eight

…where they all ended up in a big pile on Nine!

“It’s no use trying,” sobbed Zero.

“I’ll never have value.

I’ll never be part of the count,” she said.

Zerolooked at herself.

“But… what if I don’t have anything inside?”

“Every number has value,” said Seven.

“Be open. You’ll find a way.”

Suddenly Zero saw herself in a new light.

I’m not empty inside. I’m open!

Zero rolled up to the other numbers.

I thought of a way for us to count even more,” she said.

Zero jumped in. Then she leaped up high and said.

“Here’s something we can try!

If we help each other soar, we can count even more! “
