A tender, lyrical celebration of all the wonderful firsts in a little one’s life, from the first morning sun to first shaky steps to the first day of preschool and everything in between.

Every little one learns to laugh, learns to talk, takes first steps, and eventually goes to school and makes new friends. All these milestones are celebrated in this joyful, rhyming text that is perfect for read-aloud sharing.
