Reviews - What do customers think about I'm Growing! (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1)?
I love Aliki books! Apr 5, 2007
These books never disappoint! All of Aliki's books are written in language that young children can easily understand. This book is no different. "I'm Growing" explores the changes that young children observe in themselves or in older/younger siblings. The illustrations are excellent. My preschoolers enjoy hearing this book read to them over and over again.
Good Lesson Mar 7, 2002
This book was about how and why children grow. There are great pictures, charts and diagrams to help the author explain that children's bones, organs and even teeth grown and change. She explains that correct nutrition and proper care is needed in order to allow your body to grow and for you to be healthy. The book goes on to say that when you are older your bones may stop growing. However, your hair and nails keep growing. Brandenberg explains very simply what the young readers can expect as they grow. The main reason why I liked that book was because in the story the author tried to get the point across that everyone grows at different rates. Some people's hair grows faster or they may lose their baby teeth before all the other kids. Also, boys may be shorter than girls when they are young but soon they will be taller than their classmates. It would have been nice to be reassured when I was the littlest in the class that soon I would grow, it will just take time and care. The author highlights the importance of eating healthy if you want to be big and strong when you are older. She shares with the young readers why their bodies are changing and what they can expect in the growing years to come.
