What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell perfectly capture a little girl’s simple, joyous celebration of herself, as she looks back on her childhood from the lofty height of four and a half years. This spirited view of growing up is perfect to share at home or in a classroom, as kids will respond to the exuberant pleasures of growing freedom and independence. “When I was little, I could hardly do anything. But now I can do lots of things, like braid my own hair and go to nursery school. I’m not a baby anymore. I’m me!”
