Stephen Krensky


This third book in Stephen Krensky and Sara Gillingham’s empowerment series celebrates the feats of growing out of toddlerhood with increased knowledge. Whether comparing heavy rocks to lighter flowers, or noting that the sunlight delineates the day from the night, Krensky and Gillingham acknowledge the “small wins” of understanding the world just a little bit more. Young children and their parents will revel in the uplifting text and boldly colored retro-fresh illustrations.

Praise for I Know a Lot
“This appealingly illustrated, confidence-boosting board book will inspire little ones to think of-and perhaps catalog aloud-all of the important things they already know about their world.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“The limited primary color scheme and preponderance of simple shapes bolster the idea of kids mastering the basics.”
-Publishers Weekly

“Readers will respond to the child’s confidence by being proud of their own understanding of the world. 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
