Synopsis

The acclaimed creators of CATHERINE AND LAURENCE ANHOLT'S BIG BOOK OF FAMILIES take an affectionate, amusing look at the everyday world of little (and not so little) children.

What are babies like? How about big kids? And everyone in between? With signature bright colors and bouncy verse, Catherine and Laurence Anholt offer a warm tribute to children everywhere. Their charming vignettes fill five chapters:
—Very Little Children
—Little Children’s Likes and Loves
—How Little Children Feel
—What Little Children Do
—Little Children’s Families

Drawing on their own considerable experience as parents, the authors of CATHERING AND LAURENCE ANHOLT'S BIG BOOK OF LITTLE CHILDREN explore children’s likes and loves, hates and hopes, feelings and friends, favorite activities, families, and more, all with heartfelt perception and an abundance of humor.
