Blurb from goodreads:

"Two!" is a funny little rhyming book about what it's like to spend a day with a toddler - from food eaten off the floor to a child running out the door!

Bea's Thoughts:

I've taught toddlers for over 20 years and I love humorous books so this was a tour I knew I had to participate in. "Two!" is funny and clearly written by someone who has spent significant time with two year olds. "Two!" takes us a through a fairly typical day of a two year old and depicts it both lovingly and humorously.

I took the book to school and read it to the two year olds and also some of the three year olds. While they didn't love it, they did enjoy it. When I put it on the shelf in the classroom for several weeks, the children would choose it, sit and look at it, and giggle at the pictures. The illustrations are cheery and with just the right amount of detail for this age group.

"Two!" was exuberant, funny, sweet, and cute. It delights in the antics of a two year old and shows that mom loves her exhausting, sometimes contradictory, child. This book will be enjoyed by both children and adults.

Praise for the Book "Tia does an awesome job in this book capturing the funny antics of a two year old and putting them on paper in a way that is funny for your child and even more funny for mom and dad!...If you want a cute book to read to your child(ren) and get a good laugh yourself (maybe cry a little because of your frustration? LOL!), this is a really cute one for the whole family. This book has made it to the frequently read shelf!" 

 "It's a book I don't mind having to read to my daughter over and over and over and over again. Every toddler's library should include this book. Well done!"

 ""Two" is ingenious. Ostensibly a child's board book, it looks like one, feels like one, and reads like one with its primary vocabulary and rhyme. And yet anyone who's been a parent or sibling of a two-year-old will recognize the characteristic behaviors, grimace at the memories of them all, and then smile. You can't help but smile, perhaps in relief that you did survive this year." 

Author Tia Perkin Tia Perkin is a three-time Emmy-Nominated Graphic Artist and Arizona native. She wrote this book for her now three-year-old twin sons. "Two!" is her first book.

  1. This looks like a cute book. Even though my son is in college now, I still like to keep my eye out for books for my friends with little ones.

  2. Sounds so cute and illustrations are key at that age!
