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.

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.
