ABOUT THE BOOK
Celebrate the many ways children grow—inside and out—with these words of affirmation for kids.
You Are Growing All the Time celebrates the many ways children grow—inside and out—and supports them through the ups and downs along the way.
The steady love of a caregiver can help children thrive, even when life is challenging. You Are Growing All the Time recognizes and affirms the physical, social, emotional, and educational growth of children as they: grow taller • help a friend who fell off the swings • pause and breathe when angry about losing a game • ask questions
Written from the perspective of a caring adult speaking to a child, You Are Growing All the Time features charming rhymes, words of affirmation for kids, and a heartwarming message. The book is perfect for storytime, home, the preschool classroom, and whenever children need a reminder of all the ways they’re loved and appreciated.
