Children love to hear the stories about what they were like and all the wonderful, amazing, interesting, and funny things they did when they were 1-year-olds. They also have endless questions about the wonderful year they were 1.

Why do they ask so many questions?
Why do they touch or grab almost everything they can?
Why do they want to open almost everything they can?
Why do most of them still suck their thumbs or fingers?
How do they learn to talk in sentences?
How do they learn to walk up and down stairs -- and run?
Why do they still wear diapers?
What's a "toddler"?
The award-winning team who created Hello Benny! What It's Like To Be A Baby has created a second picture book for their series, Growing Up Stories -- books that tell enchanting stories and fascinating facts about the first five years of life.
Go! Go! Maria! tells the story of Maria and celebrates her second year of life -- from walking on her own for the very first time to running from room to room, from learning how to say "No!" "Me!" and "Mine!" to asking her big brother Percy "What dat?" to pinching her friend Molly, and to singing her own name on her second birthday. Go! Go! Maria! captures the remarkable story of how 1-year-olds "grow up."
Combining a beautifully told story with a myriad of fascinating facts about 1-year-olds, Robie H. Harris and Michael Emberley have created another timeless book for children to enjoy and for families to share together.
