Editorial Reviews

"This is a happy book, people!…First Times is a wonderful family book about growing up and being proud of every achievement. I highly recommend it."

"Whether helping with shopping, making dinner, taking care of a new dog, or reading independently, these sibs are proud to exclaim their growth with each new feat…The basic concepts will easily be recognizable by both those who have already achieved and those aspiring to attain each new skill or experience…Notable for the diversity of its characters."
