The perfect present for three-year-olds, this picture book is a celebration of all things three!
All the best things come in threes, not one, not two, but three, like the three-year-olds in this sweet picture book. As all parents know, three is a big year. Follow along as three friends learn new things in threes—from tricycles to triangles—take a dip in the pool, and play in the park with their friends! Of course, it’s not all fun and games. There’s a tantrum and then hugs all around as the three kids head to bed.
This adorable picture book celebrating important life events is the perfect gift for third birthdays. Kids will love pointing out all the activities they can do now that they are three years old.
So long, terrible twos it's good to be three. There are friendships and newfound independence to explore; an increased confidence in one's physical capabilities and powers of self-expression ("Let's play pretend. Roar, I cry./ Lions, tigers, and bears. Oh my!"); and preschool, where all these talents get used on a daily basis. Additionally, notes Ward (Henry Finds His Word), being three means taking some tribal pride in all those other important threes out there, including the three bears, the three pigs, the primary colors, and the wheels of a tricycle. Although there are a couple of outbreaks of crankiness ("My mom begins to count to three./ Uh-oh! Time out. She points at me"), the mood is otherwise sunny. The book has some stretches that seem more like a catalogue of cuteness or a generic celebration of toddlerhood, as opposed to concrete developmental milestones associated with being three, but Ward's guileless rhymes and trio of round-headed, rosy-cheeked cherubs are worthy of at least three cheers. Ages 1 3.
