Celebrating Milestones of the First Two Years

You Are One and the sequel You Are Two by Sara O’Leary celebrate the milestones during the first two years of a baby’s life. Each book is written in second person, directly capturing the experience of the child.

You Are One begins, “So much has changed in just a year. You are one!” It continues to highlight all the changes and accomplishments of a one year old, from first steps and eating solids to communication and favorite games.

You Are Two picks up where You Are One left off. It highlights the desire for independence and decision making, from personal style to eating on ones own. You Are Two reminds me of my close friend’s two-year-old daughter in the sweetest way. Emotions are stronger than during the first year, but a child’s personality is becoming more prominent.

You Are One and You Are Two are perfect additions to home library collections. These would make great 1st and 2nd birthday presents for toddlers. The illustrations by Karen Klassen are perfect, they are tangible and sentimental, capturing the emotions of each milestone from the parent’s perspective but also in a way that is accessible for kids.
