Description
This fourth book in the empowerment series celebrates the feats of growing out of toddlerhood with courage and success. Whether it's petting a dog or waving good-bye to a parent, Krensky and Gillingham address the "small wins" of growing just a little bit braver. Young children and their parents will revel in the encouraging text and the vintage screen-print-style illustrations.
