Life’s third year is full of milestones: learning ABCs, making friends, playing make-believe, and having real conversations. The final book in this series, You Are Three, looks back on each of these memorable achievements and more, inviting little ones to celebrate how much they have grown and discovered. Supersaturated ink-and-wash illustrations in a striking palette lend a contemporary, whimsical feel to the book while the diverse children pictured add to the text’s warmth and broad appeal. You Are Three is a timely gift for toddlers and their parents, who will enjoy reflecting on the highlights of the third year and expressing how much their child is loved.


Rationale for Inclusion: In addition to being well-reviewed by a credible source such as Kirkus, this book offers a great way for parents and their children to celebrate this milestone occasion. This book also provides very nice illustrations which seek to highlight many of the various milestones associated with a child’s third year of life and all of the fond memories of previous years. What is perhaps most appealing about this book is the love, joy and closeness that are emphasized in the relationships being portrayed throughout the book.
