Blurb from goodreads:

"Three!" is a funny little rhyming book about what it's like to spend a day with a preschooler - from getting themselves dressed to making a big mess! With beautiful illustrations (complete with dinosaurs, trains and superheroes) and a catchy story that both parents and kids can enjoy again and again, this is a must-have for your children's book collection.

My Thoughts:

I very much enjoyed the author's previous book, "Two!" so when I saw this, I jumped right on it. "Three!" has the same joyful rambunctiousness as its predecessor and features the same family. It follows the gleeful adventures, and misadventures, of a three year old boy. Perkin does a good job of capturing the attitude of a three year old boy. Parents, preschool teachers, and other caregivers of young children will recognize and relate to this cheerful, energetic child. The artwork is bright and cheerful with just enough detail to catch a young child's attention.

I was disappointed that this time around the review copies were digital instead of print as my print copy of "Two" has gotten much love in the classroom. We can't do ebooks in the classroom so I'll have to put this on my classroom wish list.

Praise for the Book

"Tia has done it again. Great fun reading this and talking it through with little ones. The art is fun just to look at, the words are fun to read and even more fun to read aloud. If you like reading to or teaching reading to little ones, this is a great addition to any collection."

"If you have raised a three-year-old or spent any amount of time with one, you'll be nodding your head in recognition as you turn the pages of this on-the-spot book by Tia Perkin. The youngster in this book is a dynamo with no let up from sun up to sun down. Up at 6:30 wanting breakfast, getting dressed by himself, making a commotion in the grocery, fighting nap time, potty then no potty, need a drink of water, want cheese, want grapes, playing pirate - and on and on and on until to mom's relief he's asleep.

This is a fun little book for parent and child alike with its zany, expressive graphics and three-year-old antics."

"This is the perfect follow up to Two! It's is more in depth than Two! while having the same fun rhyming story as the first one. As always, the art is top notch! Must buy for anyone who wants a fun entertaining read for their toddler."
