This is an adorable book by Margaret Wise Brown, who is probably best known for her Good Night Moon storybook. This book is a charmingly written poem about what is important at different ages of childhood, beginning with age one and progressing to age 5 and 6. The illustrations by Chris Raschka, are also adorable.
Each stage of the poem begins with, "The important thing about being (ex: one) is.... But the important thing about being (ex: one) is that....." Here is a small excerpt from the book to give you an idea of how cute this rhyming book is: "Now at Four, you can open the door. You've grown a lot, you'll grow some more. You can vlink and think as quick as a wink, You can open your eyes to a world of surprise..."
It's great fun book to read to a child. At the end of the book is a big mirrored board to tell you the most important thing is that you are YOU! I love this beautiful rhyming picture book!!
