Every stage in growing up has its own fun and challenges, and the adorable star of this book faces each one with gusto. As a baby, there?s the taste-everything phase?whether it is meant to be eaten?or not! And as a toddler, there?s the question-everything phase. But all the while baby is growing up and becoming a curious kid whose exploration of the world leads to amazing places and discoveries. He?s come so far and learned so much, and now everyone is so proud of him!

From Booklist:

Milgrim’s colorful and congratulatory title revels in the idea that play is a form of education. The book’s protagonist is a cheerful Everychild whose curiosity, determination, and love of doughnuts (the pastry is prevalent throughout) has grown with him from babyhood to big-kid elementary student. As a celebration of free time, this book is full of action—wandering, wondering, prodding, questioning, listening, expressing—that adds up to learning. Significantly, not a single television or computer appears, not even in the background. This is a story about homegrown amusements and the rewards they reap. Milgrim’s bright, minimal, cartoon-style drawings match the book’s messages about simple joys, and the speech bubbles provide comic balance to the more pedestrian rhyming text: the mother handing her child a plateful of octopus and telling him, “It tastes like chicken!” will raise a smile with both reader and listener, for example. Completely free of schedules and micromanagement, this is a book that celebrates kids being kids. Preschool-Grade 1. --Kara Dean
