The Importance of Being 3 by Lindsay Ward- OPTIONAL

Ward, Lindsay. The Importance of Being 3, PICTURE BOOK. Dial Books for Young Readers, 2016. $16.99. Three small three year olds discuss the many wonderful things that come in threes. They also talk about all the wonderful things that they can do now that they are three. Sometimes being three is hard, but it’s also wonderful to be able to do many more things now than they could do when they were two. This is a cute premise, but poor on delivery. I thought the segue from talking about all the great things that come in threes to what it’s like being three years old was awkward. I think it could be somewhat relatable for toddlers, but it’s not an outstanding picture book. PRE-K- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, High School Librarian
