Amazing Me! It's Busy Being 3

Would you like to download a free children's storybook?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have teamed together with Julia Cook and Dr. Laura Jana to write a fun book that helps parents identify developmental milestones in their 3 year old children.

To learn how AMAZING this book is, read here!

In this story, an amazing kangaroo named Joey shows all of the amazing things he can do now that he is 3 years old. These amazing things are called developmental milestones. First steps, first words, and using the potty for the first time are all developmental milestones. Other developmental milestones, like the ones in this book, may not be as easy to see, but they are just as important for your child's development.

This book will show you what to look for as your child grows and develops. Ask your child to find the koala bears. Each page with a koala bear also has a star and milestone at the bottom just for you. See if your 3-year-old child is able to do some of the same things as Joey.

Also be sure to turn to the end of the book for:

  • 3-year-old milestones
  • tips about how you can help your child learn and grow, and
  • to find out where you can go for more information.
