Celebrate the many ways children grow—inside and out—with these words of affirmation for kids.

You Are Growing All the Time celebrates the many ways children grow—inside and out—and supports them through the ups and downs along the way.

The steady love of a caregiver can help children thrive, even when life is challenging. You Are Growing All the Time recognizes and affirms the physical, social, emotional, and educational growth of children as they:
  • grow taller
  • help a friend who fell off the swings
  • pause and breathe when angry about losing a game
  • ask questions
Written from the perspective of a caring adult speaking to a child, You Are Growing All the Time features charming rhymes, words of affirmation for kids, and a heartwarming message. The book is perfect for storytime, home, the preschool classroom, and whenever children need a reminder of all the ways they’re loved and appreciated.

All the Time Series
Written from the perspective of an adult speaking to a child, these whimsical rhyming books help young children know that they are deserving of love through life’s ups and downs. This encouraging series features affirmations for kids and shows them all the ways they’re supported as they grow and learn. Each book includes a letter to caregivers with additional information to reinforce the books’ messages.

You Are Growing All the Time is such a celebration of children—Fred Rogers would be so proud! Through Deborah Farmer Kris’s loving and playful words, kids and parents will be celebrating life’s small moments with BIG results of empowerment, kindness, and a sense of self-worth.”
- Angela C. Santomero, creator of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, co-creator of Blue’s Clues

“Kids are growing every day, and You Are Growing All the Time underscores that even the smallest changes are important. Every page of Deborah Farmer Kris’s beautifully illustrated new book celebrates a different way that children grow, from trying something new, to learning to ride a bike, to growing kinder, braver, and more curious. As an elementary school counselor, therapist, and parent, I love Kris’s reminder to recognize and mark kids’ progress, whether change is happening on the inside or the outside.”
- Phyllis Fagell, LCPC, school counselor and author of Middle School Matters

You Are Growing All the Time is a heartwarming celebration of childhood that will help children recognize that growth is about a lot more than just getting bigger. This beautiful book shows kids that the little things in life add up—that when we do things like work through challenges, try new things, wait patiently, and help others, we grow and change in meaningful ways and make the world a better place.”
- Melinda Wenner Moyer, author of How to Raise Kids Who Aren't Assholes

“Ups and downs, highs and lows—they’re par for the course as children learn and grow. Deborah Farmer Kris’s gentle, caring books assure them of adults’ love and support—all the time. A must-have series for the young children in your life.”
