A Four-Year-Old girl talks about all her 'big girl' things as she contrasts all of the things she did as a baby with everything she likes/does now.
Easy to read, bright, engaging illustrations, complete with subtleties to give Mom and Dad a chuckle, too.
We read a hard-cover edition. At 18 months we'd grab pages, not just point. It's wear-and-tear threshold is good, but not perfect.
Initially, the bright, semi-abstract illustrations caught her eye. Now at 2+ years, we like to point out all our 'big girl' activities, too.
The story, told from a child's perspective, has all of the fun and innocence we would expect from a preschooler describing her life.
A fun story for little girls who want affirmation that they're Big Girls, now.
It's a nice memory tool, as you can extract events from the story and tell your child what she was like as an infant.

Buy. It's a fun story that toddlers and preschoolers will want to read over and over. It's the story of their life.
