This is the third of this team’s empowerment titles, but it is fully successful as a stand-alone." —School Library Journal "Sara Gillingham’s colorful pictures, which, with their occasional offsets, look like hand-made prints, show the girl in the process of these and other discoveries: playing outdoors, sledding with friends and standing behind her father at the stove." —The New York Times "From the moment she opened I Know a Lot, she was hooked! Turned out, that was her gateway into being completely obsessed with reading." —The Huffington Post  ...

    "I Know a Lot!". I have heard that A LOT as the parent of a six year old. This picture book is perfect. I love the little ragdoll look of the character and the bright colors and big letters. My daughter read this one easily on her own and was proud to compare and contrast her level of success in the small but oh so important things that the character achieved. This book is one in a series of books meant to empower our little ones and teach them that big lessons and big successes can from small things and small people. The overall message is to celebrate yourself and it is a timely message indeed.

    Really enjoyed this book and the other one in the series that I read to my kiddo. I like that it is uplifting and that the illustrations are children of color. This volume celebrated the way that kids learn as they grow, all in a very positive light. Definitely recommend this series of books!

    This is a peppy board book featuring a little girl who knows "A LOT!" about the world. The graphic representation of the little girl, her parents, and her friends is really appealing. I'm also interested in how race is visualized in the book (even though discussing race is not a central stake in this book - children of distinct visages merely exist together, which is quite wonderful), especially as the whiteness is presented as just that - stark white - on a stark white backdrop. This is a book that would make a great addition to a young reader's board book collection.

    This is such a neat little book and there's a lot of reasons to love it! The illustrations are so much fun to look at, I love that it shows a little girl with her dad (and that it depicts a black family), and I think its message is a great one for toddlers. I plan to check out the other books in this series to share with my 3 year old!

    Great to see a colorful, rhyming board book for toddlers that features an African-American girl. Takes you through her day, as she shows off all the things she knows:"I know snow is cold, and stoves are hot. If you ask me things, I know a lot!"

    The protagonist lets us know that she knows a lot of things and then she tells us all about it. This book is good because it emphasizes the importance of having confidence in yourself and what you know. Kids will love telling you all the things that you know afterward.

    Hey, when you're little every bit of knowledge is a victory. And so is, apparently, a kids' book with a non-white main character that is not "about" diversity, but people just existing. Like people do. Hooray! Love the retro style of these board-book illustrations.

    Glad to see an "oversized" board book. Some board books level wise are great for reading aloud, but usually they are too small to share with a group. Nice bright colors in the illustrations.

    Points off for some of the assertions being debatable, as my kids pointed out (dark could just mean a dark room, not night...etc...) but the format, simplicity, and illustrations are great.

    A bright and cheerful book with a multi-ethnic cast. A good introduction to opposites in catchy rhyme.
