Publisher Description:
Look at me --
I'm growing With her trademark simple words and delightful pictures, Aliki explains how and why we grow. Our arms and legs, our hair and toenails, our muscles, bones, and skin all grow from the moment we are born.Some people grow faster than others; some people grow more than others. With the help of good healthy food, we all grow in our own way and at our own speed.It will happen to you, too

PreS-Gr 1 --A brief examination of the human growth process, detailed by a young boy who has outgrown his clothing. The discussion includes obvious topics such as bones, muscles, teeth, plus internal organs. Growth rates and dwarfism are touched on, along with mention of the role of energy and food in the process. The text, and the context, are almost too simplistic; there are no explanations offered, just statements of fact. The vibrant illustrations are done in pen-and-ink, watercolor, and colored-pencil. The narrator and his 3 family have dark skin, hair, and eyes, but their ethnic origin isn't specified. Patricia Pearce's See How You Grow (Barron's, 1988) offers more information for the same age group. All in all, an attractive but marginal effort. --Denise L.
