How do you take your first steps? The cute baby animals go from holding on to the sofa to being a little bit wobbly or holding hands.
A perfect book for little ones ages 1 and up about growing up and learning to walk.
Baby-Toddler-Sweet diapered baby animals with huge eyes illustrate the process of learning how to walk. "[Y]ou will first have to learn how to get up...lift your head first...the first time you stand up you will still be a little wobbly...." After the many steps of cruising on furniture, standing unassisted, and walking with the help of a parent, on each page the little ones get closer to independent walking (with the inevitable ups and downs). The last page shows a happy toddler taking a step, eager to explore. The adorable illustrations feature colorful patterns set against ample white backgrounds, with a different animal for each action, fittingly accompanied by simple text conveying an encouraging positive message. VERDICT A perfect book for sharing with caregivers of babies and -toddlers who might be taking their first steps, too. - School Libray Journal
