"Katz’s signature, colorful, stylized characters rendered in watercolor and gouache romp through the pages... A sweet celebration of leaving baby days behind."
"Katz’s signature rosy-cheeked kids of different ethnicities—wearing patterned clothes on bright backgrounds—are full of joy and energy; their pride is all over these pages, and that’s something toddlers will understand."
