You Are New by Lucy Knisley is a celebration of the wonders of being new. Babies with all sorts of cute expressions cavort on the pages. It’s all so exciting, and quite frankly tiring, to be new at everything. The rhyming text makes it a perfect read aloud. The yells and smells of babyhood are included to balance the overwhelming cuddliness. It’s all about learning things all the time, the one part of growing up that never changes--thankfully! The boldly colored graphics style illustrations really capture the excitement of the brand new.
