Overview

Children love to hear the stories about what they were like and all the wonderful, amazing, interesting, and funny things they did when they were 1-year-olds. They also have endless questions about the wonderful year they were 1.
Why do 1-year-olds want to talk all the time?
Why do they ask so many questions?

Why do they touch or grab almost everything they can?
Why do they want to open almost everything they can?

Why do most of them still suck their thumbs or fingers?

How do they learn to talk in sentences?

How do they learn to walk up and down stairs -- and run?

Why do they still wear diapers?

What's a "toddler"?

The award-winning team who created Hello Benny! What It's Like To Be A Baby has created a second picture book for their series, Growing Up Stories -- books that tell enchanting stories and fascinating facts about the first five years of life.

Go! Go! Maria! tells the story of Maria and celebrates her second year of life -- from walking on her own for the very first time to running from room to room, from learning how to say "No!" "Me!" and "Mine!" to asking her big brother Percy "What dat?" to pinching her friend Molly, and to singing her own name on her second birthday. Go! Go! Maria! captures the remarkable story of how 1-year-olds "grow up."

Combining a beautifully told story with a myriad of fascinating facts about 1-year-olds, Robie H. Harris and Michael Emberley have created another timeless book for children to enjoy and for families to share together.

"Go! Go! Maria!" celebrates Maria's full year of life--from walking on her own for the very first time to running from room to room.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Growing Up Stories: Go! Go! Maria! What It's Like to Be 1 by Robie H. Harris, illus. by Michael Emberley, tells the story of one-year-old Maria, as she learns to walk and to say words like "Hola!," "Pap !," "No!" and "Mine!" As with their Hello Benny! What It's Like to Be a Baby, Harris and Emberley sprinkle facts about toddlers throughout the story, with tidbits about how they learn and how they play, in sidebars with spot illustrations. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
What a wonderful blend of a story for babies and their siblings, and information for parents. The delightful illustrations of babies doing what babies do are rendered in watercolor, pastel, and pen and ink. They show a great deal of humor with respect and love for babies. Messy babies, crying babies, zooming babies, toddling babies, and even a baby with underpants on her head populate the pages. The book contains lots of Spanish, and shows babies of every race. The text for children simply describes the babies' activities. The text in blue, for adults, explains why babies do some of these things, and how to encourage them to explore their world. This is considered volume 2 of Growing Up Stories, following Hello Benny! What It's Like To Be A Baby, and preceding Sweet Jasmine! Nice Jackson! What It's Like To Be 2, by the same author and illustrator. 2003, Margaret K. McElderry Books/Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing Division, Ages 1 to 6.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 5-Including some simple Spanish dialogue, Harris tells about Maria's development in her second year. Such toddler achievements as turning on the television and learning to talk are illustrated with Emberley's cheerful cartoons done in pen, watercolor, and pastels. Accompanying text boxes discuss facets of toddler behavior in simple language. While the egocentricity of three- and four-year-olds precludes much interest in books about a younger child, and the story is too wordy for the very young, Maria! is a wonderful book to explain toddler behavior to older siblings and baby-sitters. The developmental text could also be helpful for teenage parents, who may be reluctant or unable to read the lengthy parenting tomes that are available.-Jane Barrer, Washington Square Village Creative Steps, New York City Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
