The :first-of-type Selector is used to targeting the first child of every element of it’s parent. if we want to style the first child of an element without giving a class, we can use it. 


:first-of-type {



<!DOCTYPE html>
        p:first-of-type {
            background: limegreen;
            font-size: 4.0em;
            font-style: italic;
    <p>First child</p>
    <p>Second child.</p>
    <p>Third child.</p>
    <p>Fourth child.</p>
