The Important thing
about being One
is that life
has just begun.

In a playful voice that is uniquely Margaret Wise Brown's comes this delightful picture book about just what it means to be six, five, four, three, one, two and 'most importantly' you. Caldecott Honor Medalist Chris Raschka's innovative illustrations burst with energy and literally dance along with Brown's whimsical verses of discovery. A sturdy mirror fixed to the last page allows readers to literally become a part of the story.

Another Important Book is the never-before-published companion to one of the most beloved children's books of all time, The Important Book, originally published in 1949, by Margaret Wise Brown, with illustrations by Leonard Weisgard. It's an invitation to celebrate toddlerhood. Turn the pages to find out exactly what's so important about some of the most important ages of a child's life.
