In a playful voice that is uniquely Margaret Wise Brown's comes this delightful picture book about just what it means to be six, five, four, three, one, two, and "most importantly" you.
Caldecott Honor Medalist Chris Raschka's innovative illustrations burst with energy and dance along with Brown's whimsical verses of discovery.
"Energetic artwork and vivacious verse delineate the wonders children discover and the milestones they reach, from ages one to six. A joyful book with a timeless theme," said School Library Journal.
Another Important Book is an invitation to celebrate toddlerhood. Turn the pages to celebrate exactly what's so important about some of the most important ages of a child's life. This is the never-before-published companion to one of Margaret Wise Brown's most beloved children's books of all time, The Important Book.
