Book 37: Little One Step, by Simon James, Candlewick Press 2003. Toddler to Preschool.
This book is so true! My eighteen-month-old son runs around the house like an idiot, or runs through the library pulling books off of the shelves if I set him down for a SECOND. But will he walk on his own when I want him to? -- No way! And so, Little One Step finds he can walk no farther.
I could have sworn that the author is French, because he style is so clean, simple, and yet elegant, but when I looked on the back cover, he appears to be as American as I am. So, there is hope for me yet in the elegance department.
Anyway, Little One Step is a sweet, encouraging book for anyone, especially anyone who needs a little encouragement.
