Overview

From diapers to "big person" underwear, from baby bathtub to shower, from slip-on shoes to laces, and from tricycle to two-wheeler-these are just a few of the milestones every child strives to achieve in growing from infancy to school age. Focusing on specific developmental milestones that children will identify with and take pride in, this colorful book follows Billy through the significant changes in a child's first years, changes that provide tangible proof that a child is getting "big." Each colorful illustration portrays a major event in Billy's step-by-step progress toward growing into a big boy. The repetition of the phrase "Billy is a big boy. Are you a big boy too?" will have young readers actively responding to each page and reflecting on their own achievements, while its question and response format actively involves children in story time.

Author Biography: Don Hoffman is an award-winning education and arts and entertainment television reporter for CBS affiliate CBS 58 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the artistic director of Merry-Go-Round Children's Theatre. He lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Todd Dakins, a featured illustrator for Milwaukee Magazine, illustrated the Rainbow Bakery Children's Cookbook and Bobby and Minnie-We Can Do Anything. He lives in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-In this picture book aimed at preschool boys, each spread names a rite of passage (using the toilet, graduating from booster seat to seat belts), and then enlists the refrain, "Billy is a big boy. How about you? Do you-[fill in the activity]? Are you a big boy too?" The events vary in age suitability. Giving up bottle drinking and riding a tricycle seem disparate for this catalog and it's doubtful that many parents will consider trading a pacifier for a lollipop appropriate. The toddler-flavored text fades further when compared to the drawings. Dappled scenes of tousled, towhead Billy create an endearing personality, contagious with joie de vivre. The simple indoor backgrounds are especially effective in providing character details. Unfortunately, according to his birthday cake, Billy is five, but his tally of accomplishments doesn't match his chronological age.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    billy is wonderful!

    it's rare that you find a children's book that explores that age between toddlerhood and childhood with such whimsy. Billy is a perfect gift for boys AND girls between the ages of 4 and 6. Billy celebrates the milestones we adults may sometimes take for granted--tying your shoes, taking a shower, using a fork . . . the illustrations are award winning, making adorable Billy spring to life from the pages of this book.
