Phaidon Press 2016. ISBN 9780714871264
(Age: 2-5) Recommended. Written by internationally bestselling author, Taro Gomi, Growing Together is a four book box set designed to share. Neatly backed in a sturdy display box, readers will find four small books titled Growing, Imagining, Sharing and Exploring all of which are nicely connected.
Throughout all four books, pictures reflect Taro Gomi's and Phaidon Press's Japanese culture. Additionally, the stories include short simple sentences, ideal for a young and growing family. Growing Together is strongly family oriented and features real-life scenarios.
Overall, the Growing Together set is about childhood and families in all its honesty, unexpectedness and charm.
