What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Award-winning poet and author Marilyn Singer presents 21 poems celebrating milestones both big and small in a young person’s life, such as learning how to whistle, riding the school bus alone, and becoming an older sibling. Growing up is exciting! It’s packed with firsts—losing a tooth, visiting the ocean, and going to a baseball game. It’s bursting with accomplishments—figuring out how to snap your fingers, reading a whole book by yourself, and learning to ride a bike. And it’s full of experiences that change you—being stung by a bee and understanding that even big kids cry, and holding your baby brother for the first time and realizing that you’re the big one now. Saluting significant milestones every child can relate to, these poems are accompanied by sweet, joyful illustrations by Jana Christy
