Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Laura J. Brown
This is a delightful and energetic picture book about a three-year-old little boy, who loves to run, jump, swing, bump, hop, wiggle, cuddle, giggle, copy, flop, and climb. He can do all these things much better now because he is bigger and three years old. The only thing he has trouble doing is slowing down and stopping. He also wants everyone to see everything that he can do by himself. He gets into everything and is a bit of a showoff. His family loves him and gives him lots of hugs and does their best to keep up with him to make sure that he does not get hurt or stuck up in a tree. The illustrations show his movements and actions and leave no doubt about how busy this little guy really is. The text repeats the same pattern, which makes it easy for emerging readers. This book can be used to introduce young readers to new verbs that describe what they do each and every day. It is a book that can be easily read over and over again. Reviewer: Laura J. Brown
Kirkus Reviews

A joyful celebration of a toddler's new capabilities. A little boy proudly proclaims all the things he can do since he's turned three. He jumps, hops, wiggles, cuddles, giggles, climbs and crows from an adult's shoulders: "See, I'm bigger, I'm high as can be, / I'm so much bigger now I'm three." The text could describe a child from almost any culture or country, but the pictures clearly set the story in an aboriginal community in Australia. Rich reds and browns dominate the dynamic illustrations created with pastels on colored paper. For the most part, the landscape is sparse, populated by only a few buildings and scattered trees in the background. Foregrounded is a community in which children actively explore an expansive natural world while supportive adults lend them an occasional hand and scoop them in for cuddles. Pair this with I Can Do It Too, by Karen Baicker and illustrated by Ken Wilson-Max (2003), or I Can Do It Myself!, by Diane Adams and illustrated by Nancy Hayashi (2009), for a triple celebration of toddlers' and preschoolers' increasing independence. (Picture book. 2-4)
