The author is also the illustrator of this charming book for three year olds. It is clear the author has children of her own, because she has a great understanding of what would appeal to this age level. When she begins with “Not 1 or 2 but 3 like me!” can’t you just hear a three-year-old insisting the same?

The little girl in the book learns to share (sort of) and learns her shapes and colors, plays in the park, has ice cream, and has a melt down:

“I throw a fit.
Some days are rough.
I cry and scream.
Three sure is tough.”

She gets a time out, a hug from mom, and:

“No more tears.
The grumps are gone.
Here come my friends.
Let’s go, come on!”

Evaluation: The language level is just right, and the illustrations are adorable. ( )

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.
