Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 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.

About the Author

Aliki has been delighting her many fans since her first book was published. A longtime resident of New York City, she now lives in London.

Aliki's books for young readers include All by Myself!, Digging Up Dinosaurs, Fossils tell of Long Ago, How a Book Is Made, Mummies Made in Egypt, My Feet, My Five Senses, My Visit to the Aquarium, My Visit to the Zoo, Wild and Woolly Mammoths, and William Shakespeare & the Globe.

More About the Author

Aliki is the author and illustrator of more than fifty books for children that are treasured by readers all over the world. Her many well-loved titles include My Visit to the Zoo, My Visit to the Aquarium, My Visit to the Dinosaurs, Wild and Woolly Mammoths, Tabby, and Those Summers. Aliki lives near the Globe theater, in London, England.

In Her Own Words..."Aliki grew up in Philadelphia in a big Greek family where everyone was busy creating and sharing their activities. She knew from the time she was in kindergarten that she wanted to bean artist, although music was also a natural talent. She was encouraged throughout her early life by her parents and by teachers she will never forget."She graduated from the Philadelphia Collegeof Art and started a career in advertising art. After she married Franz Brandenberg, Aliki continued her career in his country, Switzerland, where they lived for three years. It was there that she wrote and illustrated her first book, The Story of William Tell, which was published in England. When they moved to New York, Aliki wrote and illustrated My Five Senses--the book that changed the direction of her career and her life.

Although she had never thought of being a writer, Aliki has been making books ever since. Children's books, she says, are a combination of two things I love: words and pictures. I also love the privacy of books--both reading them and making them. Aliki writes fiction, in which she can express her feelings, and nonfiction research books about subjects she's interested in and wants to know more about. Each book is a new challenge; each is different, she says. The subject directs the way I illustrate a book, the same way friends bring out different parts of us. The challenge is to get the words right and then to make pictures that expand and enhance their meaning.""Besides her own books, Aliki has illustrated many written by Franz Brandenberg and other authors. Her two children are also in the arts. Jason is a filmmaker and Alexa is a children's book author-illustrator. They appear in almost all of her books as cats, mice, or themselves.

Aliki loves music, theater, cinema, museums, children, her cat, Nefertiti, and working in her garden in London, where she lives. She travels frequently to the U.S., Greece, Switzerland, and other parts of the world, though most of the time she is alone in her studio with the books she is working on--and Mozart."

Format: Paperback
This book was about how and why children grow. There are great pictures, charts and diagrams to help the author explain that children's bones, organs and even teeth grown and change. She explains that correct nutrition and proper care is needed in order to allow your body to grow and for you to be healthy. The book goes on to say that when you are older your bones may stop growing. However, your hair and nails keep growing. Brandenberg explains very simply what the young readers can expect as they grow.
The main reason why I liked that book was because in the story the author tried to get the point across that everyone grows at different rates. Some people's hair grows faster or they may lose their baby teeth before all the other kids. Also, boys may be shorter than girls when they are young but soon they will be taller than their classmates. It would have been nice to be reassured when I was the littlest in the class that soon I would grow, it will just take time and care.
The author highlights the importance of eating healthy if you want to be big and strong when you are older. She shares with the young readers why their bodies are changing and what they can expect in the growing years to come.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These books never disappoint! All of Aliki's books are written in language that young children can easily understand. This book is no different. "I'm Growing" explores the changes that young children observe in themselves or in older/younger siblings. The illustrations are excellent. My preschoolers enjoy hearing this book read to them over and over again.
