Description

Celebrate change with your growing baby as a young boy gets bigger and tries new things.

The boy in this book is too big for his crib, his shoes, and his tricycle. And he is too big for Grandpa to pick up.

But he is just right for his big-boy bed, his new shirt, and his bicycle. And he is just right for a hug from Grandpa, for his sister, and for this book. He is just right!

Delightful illustrations by David McPhail make this confidence building board book just right for toddlers. A celebration of self-acceptance, growth, and change!
