Ready, Steady, Grow! ISBN: 9780745961606
Published by Lion Hudson plc, 2009
Bright, crayon illustrations help make this information book about growing and being healthy into a kind of story. The information is basic - eating well, wearing the proper clothes for the weather, keeping active, staying safe, taking care of cuts and bruises, doing things you enjoy, bathing and cleaning teeth and getting plenty of sleep are all part of the 'story'. The cheerful pictures add much to making this the perfect first information book for the very young. The soft, padded cover also adds interest, and there is a chart inside the back cover to help children measure how tall they are growing. Huge fun!
