Once your little one starts growing, nothing is more exciting than turning another year older. Then once your little one is a year older, what is more exciting than growing a half year older and celebrating being 2 and a half or 3 and a half? Growing up can lead to excitement, questions, and maybe even a little nervousness. If your little one is growing older, asking questions, or feeling a little nervous, he or she will easily be able to relate to Pomelo, the growing, pink little elephant in this story. Pomelo realizes that he has started growing. He is bigger than his dandelion plant, strawberries, and even a teeny tiny potato! Woo hoo – he is very excited that he is taller and maybe even stronger. But then, he starts asking questions such as, “Will I grow equally all over?”. Growing up is making him a little nervous! Be sure to read Pomelo Begins to Grow to find out what Pomelo thinks of growing up in the end!
In addition to the fun, relatable storyline written by Badescu, Benjamin Chaud does some beautiful illustrations with bright drawings. It is truly a great book for your growing toddlers.
