When Alfie was just a baby he cried and smiled and sometimes he slept. When he was one he walked, ate bananas, crashed his building blocks, and pulled Mom's hair. At two, he talked and put worms in his mouth, pulled up all the plants, and didn't like having his hair washed. All sorts of things are happening now that he's three, and they're all accounted for in this account of his first three years' activities. He sleeps in his own big bed and rides his tricycle. He can count and draw nice pictures of Daddy with six eyes, standing in the rain. He can swim and squeeze toothpaste—all over the place.

Selina Young has written and illustrated numerous children's books, including Ladybird, Ladybird and A Year Full of Stories.From School Library Journal:
PreS—This book quickly runs out of steam. The pages are filled with adorable illustrations of a cherubic infant who grows into a cute toddler who is always accompanied by a stuffed tiger and a cat whose thoughts are captured in dialogue balloons. The child enumerates his achievements, from wearing "nappies" to crawling in the first year; speaking, walking, and potty training in the second; and joining a play group in the third. With text like, "Bouncing in my jolly jumper was fun./Bounce/Bounce/Bounce/Sometimes I woke up in the middle of the night," the cuteness factor is beyond reach by the time the boy reaches age three. There are many books that use the same theme successfully, including Judith Hindley's Baby Talk (Candlewick, 2006), Ruth Krauss's The Growing Story (HarperCollins, 2007), and Elaine Greenstein's As Big as You (Knopf, 2002).—Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY
