There’s only one you in this great big world. Make it a better place. Adri’s mama and papa share some of the wisdom they have gained through the years with their eager son. Their words, simple and powerful, are meant to comfort and guide him as he goes about exploring the world. This exquisitely illustrated book explodes with color and honest insights. Kranz’s uniquely painted rockfish, set against vibrant blue seas, make an unforgettable and truly special impression. Only One You will inspire parents and children of all ages as they swim through the sea of life.
He is the only kid like me. His parents tell him lots of things because they think they have wisdom. Mommy says wisdom is knowing a lot of things. The mommy and daddy want the boy fish to have fun, make friends, and see lots of art. Art is everywhere, it is, I’m serious.
It’s nice to read a book that features an only child, even though it does not focus on being an only…just portrays a family with one child. There are books about new babies, different types of families, and stages in kids’ lives. So if I come across a book about an only child I grab it up and want to celebrate our family.
This book is inspiring and sweet. It doles out wisdom that all parents want to instill in their children. It does not focus on making lots of money or being powerful. Instead the parents want their child to see the beauty in life, be happy and, make a difference in the world.
This was one of the books we bought using a gift card from his Grandma and Grandpa. we bought a few first grade books, and a bridge activity book to get him ready for first grade. .
