Reviews from Around the World
"With cheery, quirky illustrations, this charming book helps a child conceptualize the newness of the world they encounter both when they were first born and each and every day after that. I can imagine a preschool reader really responding to the illustrations - including one of a giraffe pooping (as watching the animals pass their food is one of my niece's favorite activities at the zoo, I bet she would love this too). It ends with: 'But one thing is certain. Each day I discover something new. And that is the most wonderful thing of all!'" - Cara Byrne, Goodreads

"This is a wonderful, poetic book all about a child's discovery of the world. A great new parent gift for parents who want to avoid saccharine titles. I'm fairly certain this is a translation into English, but for once it was superbly done (not always the case in picture books). I could hear the text so clearly, and the illustrations were simple, bright and graphic, whimsical and humorous. LOVE!" - Lindsay, Goodreads
