At home and at school, a little girl discovers wonderful sounds, kind words, new things to learn, and a sense of belonging. “When I really listen, I feel like I matter to someone.

“Cheri Meiners brings us another winning series, this time in the form of board books that are a joy to share with the toddler in your life. Each book offers simple yet powerful messages to help toddlers see and feel that they are loved, valued, and connected to the world. The series empowers children with a healthy sense of self while introducing timeless principles. The tips and activities at the end of each book provide parents and caregivers with ongoing support for a toddler’s healthy development. I’m delighted to recommend the Learning About Me & You series.”—Sean Covey, international best-selling author of The 7 Habits of Happy Kids and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens
