Celebrate knowledge with this triumphant board book from the Empowerment series!
I know rocks are heavy,
and flowers are light.
I know bright means day,
And dark means night.
With relevant and charming specifics, Stephen Krensky and Sara Gillingham celebrate all the things a toddler learns as they grow just a little older.
The Empowerment series addresses the small victories of growing up and starting to embrace the world on your own terms with encouraging text and retro-fresh illustrations. Celebrate the milestones of toddlerhood with the whole series.
"This appealingly illustrated, confidence-boosting board book will inspire little ones to think of—and perhaps catalog aloud—all of the important things they already know about their world."— Kirkus Reviews
"The limited primary color scheme and preponderance of simple shapes bolster the idea of kids mastering the basics."— Publishers Weekly
"Readers will respond to the child’s confidence by being proud of their own understanding of the world."— School Library Journal
"Sara Gillingham’s colorful pictures, which, with their occasional offsets, look like hand-made prints, show the girl in the process of these and other discoveries: playing outdoors, sledding with friends and standing behind her father at the stove."— The New York Times
"From the moment she opened I Know a Lot, she was hooked! Turned out, that was her gateway into being completely obsessed with reading."— The Huffington Post
