About the Book
Turn the pages of this wondrous story to discover how to grow up healthy and happy. Is it being active and playing outside? Is it taking care of the earth, the sky and our ocean? Or could it be washing our hands? Or maybe it is eating fruits and vegetables like a crunchy carrot or a juicy red berry! Join Ivy on an adventure as she learns how to take care of herself, her world, and find balance in her journey.
Meet Ivy! Baby Ivy is growing up and learning about the world. Baby Ivy wants to show you how she is learning to take care of herself.
