Celebrate the joys of a toddler in the modern family with this enchanting and lovely tale featuring three delightful dinos.
This green-scaled trio includes the sweet and energetic Little One, who starts the day with a joyous wake-up call for Mommy and Daddy. After ousting them out of bed and eating his breakfast, the adorable preschooler lollygags (as Little Ones are prone to do) before getting dressed. Then Mom and Dad drop him in Day Care, where Little One blows bubbles and reads books until it's time to go home. The fun continues, as the family plays in the living room, with Little One riding gleefully on his father's back as they play Horsey. Pooped, Mom and Dad take a rest, and the Little One sings them a lullaby. Little one is soon tucked into bed, snug and cozy, with Mom and Dad at his side.
This wonderfully touching story perfectly captures the magical world of toddlers. Using warm tones and charming detail, the illustrations evoke a sense of happy serenity and structure within the family. The Little One is especially adorable as he sings his tired parents a sleepytime song, while clutching his trusty teddy bear. The text is short and simple, making it perfect for a bedtime read. Rhymes are easy to follow and flow superbly from page to page.
Little Ones Do beautifully reveals the sweet harmony of a family full of love, laughs, and one lovely Little One. (Amy Barkat)
