Description

Life’s third year is full of milestones: learning ABCs, making friends, playing make-believe, and having real conversations. The final book in this series, You Are Three, looks back on each of these memorable achievements and more, inviting little ones to celebrate how much they have grown and discovered.

Supersaturated ink-and-wash illustrations in a striking palette lend a contemporary, whimsical feel to the book while the diverse children pictured add to the text’s warmth and broad appeal. You Are Three is a timely gift for toddlers and their parents, who will enjoy reflecting on the highlights of the third year and expressing how much their child is loved.

Editorial Reviews

"Cooperative play, dramatic role-playing, and the need to be one's own person are conveyed in the daily activities of the culturally diverse characters within this story. This book reminds readers how enchanting it is to watch toddlers emerge into independent and curious beings."

— School Library Journal

"This reassuring tale is an engaging picture of a typical three year old...the text is simple but depicts the characteristics of a three year old poetically and succinctly."

— Resource Links

"Charming...likely to appeal to babies, toddlers, and smitten family members. Recommended."

— Canadian Review of Materials

"Every bit as thoughtful as its predecessors...children's growing independence is honored rather than mourned, and the direct address of the second-person text displays an abundance of respect and joy in their growing autonomy."

— Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

"Both adults and children will enjoy sharing the books in this series to celebrate the milestones of early childhood."
