Eat good food—vegetables in all sorts of colors! When you go out to play, choose the right clothes—a hat for sunshiney days, hat and scarf for chilly days! Charming pictures and simple text show toddlers in a range of situations that help them to grow up well—eating lots of vegetables, running, jumping, skipping, and cycling, and of course remembering to brush and brush and brush one's teeth. The book ends with a detachable height chart, with even more advice, so toddlers can see how they measure up. The concluding message is that it's not all about being tall, but being truly well.

“Do you dream of growing taller?” begins the text of this child-centered charmer of a British picture book. The pages that follow offer sound recommendations, such as eat “vegetables in all sorts of colours,” choose outdoor clothes appropriate for the weather, be active but take care sometimes (a girl pictured on her tricycle wears a helmet), and get plenty of sleep. Advice that might sound tiresome coming from a parent seems helpful and sensible here, perhaps because there’s a reason to follow it. After all, nearly every toddler and preschooler wants to be a bit taller and more independent. Tapping into those desires, the simple, colorful artwork uses broad, crayonlike lines to portray a variety of capable children in action. The book’s added feature, an illustrated height chart (in inches and centimeters) tucked into a removable cellophane-like envelope in the back cover, can be discarded or given a sturdier pocket to withstand library circulation. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Carolyn Phelan
