With no frills or fuss in either text or illustration, Gomi simply and elegantly describes the essential skills that a girl picks up as she navigates her childhood. A dog has shown her how to jump, a monkey demonstrates how to climb, a butterfly shows her how to smell flowers, and the rabbit, how to hide. Ultimately she works her way up to a school setting in which she learns from teachers, books, and friends. The English and Spanish texts (appearing on facing pages) are pared down to the essential words. Gomi's pastel illustrations convey emotion and movement in a minimum of strokes and a handful of colors. Youngsters will enjoy reading along and mimicking the actions of the protagonist.
