Now I Am Big! by Stephen Krensky and Sara Gillingham Abrams, £4.99, from 18 months

“I used to just splash. Now I make waves. I used to be shy. Now I am brave,” is the empowering chant exclaimed by this story’s rosy-cheeked retro toddler as he takes us on a personal tour of modest past limitations and his present impressive achievements.

This cute board book shines a light on that particular stage of childhood where every teensy milestone is cause for celebration and reflecting back on these small victories a delight to be savoured. The book's pleased-as-punch toddler revels in his personal triumphs with all the pride and pleasure of an Olympic gold medallist.

Sara Gillingham’s wonderfully nostalgic illustrations add to the book’s sweet appeal, while her use of bold primary hues with a scuffed texture are reminiscent of a child’s potato-stamping artwork. With strong graphic appeal, this book is a real charmer from start to finish.
