“Did you know that there was a time when you didn’t know any words at all? When you were a baby you began by babbling, then putting sounds together, then saying a full word, then more words until you were saying all sorts of things. Then after you learned to talk you learned how to write words and then learned to put those words together to make a book. As you grow you learn lots of ways to communicate with others.
The text is simplistic, but it really fits well with the mood of the book. It talks about a child learning to communicate so it’s expected to see lots of simple words.
The illustrations are simplistic as well, but it fits right along with the text. Together they blend to make a fantastic story. My favorite panel is the girl reading her book she created to her stuffed animals.
My three-year-old loved this book. She thought the little girl was cute and loved having someone look like her. My six-year-old was amused by the process of learning to communicate. He enjoyed the baby talk at the beginning of the book and reading a few of the words himself.
I recommend this book for babies to six-year-olds.”
