Toddler-PreS—Celebrating the joys and milestones that occur during a child's second year, this picture book is elegant in its simplicity. "First you could walk and now you can run. In the blink of an eye, you are up and down the stairs." Mixed-media collage illustrations offer a vintage feel to the story. One page depicts a blond, tawny-cheeked cherub of a toddler holding a black rotary phone to his ear. Klassen's characters range from Asian to white to African American. The concise text shows toddlers exploring and growing as they learn and have new experiences. "You know so many things now that you are two. What you know best is your own mind." O'Leary wraps the narrative up with the proclamation of never-ending love between parent and child. VERDICT Consider purchasing for medium to larger collections looking for picture books about toddlers doing what they do best: growing with a smile.—Lisa Kropp, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY

"Two is human in this picture book, and the narration's direct address provides affirmation of toddlers' human complexity and dignity."

That being said, it would not go over well as a read-aloud for a 2 year old -- the illustrations and concepts are too complex for a toddler audience. Older siblings might appreciate it, but this is really for a parent audience.
I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
by Sara O'Leary
This is a cute story about a parents need to appreciate the time passing in their child. The parent looks at all their child has learned in the last year. The pictures are poignant reminders of how fast things change for a small child, and also re-connect the printed word to the context for the child.
The parade of diverse toddlers depict that the same changes are evident in different cultures throughout the world. "You Are Two" is a celebration of the second year of a child's life and although many changes certainly do take place the one true variable for the parents to discover is their steadfast love never ever changes toward their precious gift... their growing baby. This endearing book is heartwarming from cover to cover and is a delight to share, read of course wrapped up in lots of hugs and cuddles. A feel good book to enjoy!
