When I Was Born | Little Lit Book Series

Written by Isabel Minhós Martins and Madalena Matoso, When I Was Born is a beautiful and poignant book about what it's like to be a child and experience the world for the first time. We’re in love with Madalena Matoso's bold and graphic style and the vibrant color palette she uses to give the book a lively and playful feel.

The book gives children an idea of what's it like to grow up and how much you see, hear, smell, touch, taste and learn as a baby and then as a child.  Most importantly, it gets children wondering about what they were like when they were younger, realizing how much they've changed, how much they can do on their own now that they're older, and how much they're loved.  It reminds us the importance and magic of first experiences and milestones.
