This is a good way to look at things. At the start of the new year, everything is a first. Qin Leng is the illustrator and her graphics are lovely.
Abrams Young Readers sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you). It has been published so you can get a copy now.
All year long is a season of firsts and that makes it fun. The thing that really related to me was her fights with her brother. I had a little brother that loved to antagonize me. This girl has problems with hers, too!
This would be a good game you and your children could play. How many things have you done for the first time this year?
