Leonie has penned a simple, rhyming story that all young children can relate to. The boy in this story celebrates all the things he can do now that he is … three!
“I’m so much bigger now I’m three!”
This resonates so strongly with many children.
The warm, ochre images created by Dee Huxley accurately capture the northern territory which served as the inspiration for this book, helping to portray that not all Aussie children live in a city. The main character is gorgeous and huggable … as all three year olds should be!
This is an ideal bedtime story for the 0-3 age group and a great springboard for discussion with the 4-6 age group … ( milestones, achievements ). It’s beautiful images ensure that it will be warmly received as a present.
