About the book...

This delightful book is written from a very loving heart.  It expresses the joy and happiness found in raising a two year old.  It is a reflection of a busy year in the life of a toddler who experiences many achievements throughout the year.  Walking then running, saying and understanding words, climbing stairs in a blink of an eye, choosing her own clothes (and style), and using grown-up utensils at the table,  just to name a few.  

The parade of diverse toddlers depict that the same changes are evident in different cultures throughout the world.  "You Are Two" is a celebration of the second year of a child's life and although many changes certainly do take place the one true variable for the parents to discover is their steadfast love never ever changes toward their precious gift... their growing baby. This endearing book is heartwarming from cover to cover and is a delight to share, read of course wrapped up in lots of hugs and cuddles.  A feel good book to enjoy!
