  • Short Description
A baby’s first year is full of memorable milestones. Learning to crawl, taking first steps, tasting new foods, and forming first words are all exciting achievements. You Are One looks back on each of these universal moments and more, inviting little ones and their parents to celebrate how much they have grown and discovered in just one year, from playing peekaboo to first teeth.

Narrated in the second person, You Are One is a charming read-aloud that addresses the baby directly. Supersaturated ink-and-wash illustrations play with pattern and perspective and lend a hip, artistic feel to the book. The diverse babies pictured come to life on the page through the realism of the art, and add to the text’s warmth, sweetness and broad appeal.” The first in a three-book series, You Are One is designed as a whimsical gift for new parents who will enjoy reflecting on their baby's first year and expressing how much their little one is loved.

Contributor Website

"Here's a rarity in children's literature... endearing... delightfully textured... features babies of varying skin colors and ethnicities; it's truly inclusive." - Julie Danielson, Kirkus column

"A warm and fuzzy read." - School Library Journal

"A joyful picture book... Babies and young toddlers will enjoy both the simple, respectful observations of their activities and the captivating illustrations of babies' faces throughout. Recommended." - Canadian Review of Materials

"Further strengthening this book's charm is Calgary-based Karen Klassen's artwork... Patterned paintings intermingle portraits of diverse babies with more abstract representations of objects, like toys and food. Babies respond well to faces and expressions, and she has filled this book with them." - The National Reading Campaign

"Both adults and children will enjoy sharing the books in this series to celebrate the milestones of early childhood." - Canadian Children’s Book News
