Lexile measure:
Once I was an alphabet, now I am a book. Once I couldn't feed myself, now I love to cookEveryone and everything changes. Something small becomes part of something big. Once upon a time you were one way, but you can bet that you'll be different when you're even just a little bit older. Poet Niki Clark Leopold celebrates some of the amazing changes that happen to all of us as we grow, and the bold and vivid artwork of Woodleigh Marx Hubbard gives our imaginations brightly colored inspiration.
