How You Got So Smart: 10/02/11
How You Got So Smart by David Milgrim is a book that celebrates the milestones of childhood. It follows a baby boy as he grows and learns and goes through school and becomes "so smart".
My daughter liked the book, especially Milgrim's complex and often times silly illustrations. For instance, there's typically a pink doughnut on the page. I don't know if this is something he does in every book but it certainly caught our attention in this one.
The only think Harriet wanted to be different with the book was the main character's gender. She wanted it to star a smart girl instead of a smart boy.
