Do you want to grow up? That’s for Babies by Kramer

#ThatsForBabies #NetGalley

Prunella wakes up on her third birthday determined to be a “big girl.”  Her common refrain becomes “That’s for babies.”  While stating this, Prunella denies herself old pleasures like special breakfasts, playing with a favorite doll, going to the playground and having playdates.  Nonetheless, she remains determined until a storm awakens her at night.  Prunella then tucks herself into bed with her parents.  The next day she again participates in some of her favorite activities.

Children of toddler through preschool age often state that they want to be “big kids.”  Of course, they feel ambivalence at times.  If you know a child for whom this is true, they may enjoy this picture book.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher.  The opinions are my own.
