Big or Little? by Kathy Stinson


Big or Little? by Kathy Stinson

A big favourite about being little, now available as a board book. It can be tough sometimes, trying to figure out if you're a little kid or a big one. Putting your shoes on all by yourself means you're big. But if you can't get your shirt over your head, that must mean you're still little! The child in this classic story by Kathy Stinson goes through the day wondering which activities mean you're big, and which mean you're little. Counting to 10? Definitely big! But can't reach the biscuits...certainly means little. Being big sure would be great...but being little is okay, too. Still in demand after 25 years, Big or Little? is back with a shorter text adapted for toddlers, and wonderfully imaginative new illustrations. Full of the everyday struggles and triumphs of growing up, this favourite story will resonate with pre-schoolers everywhere.


This board book version of Big or Little? is a definite must-buy for the toddler crowd, and it's also a most worthy purchase for those libraries that already own one or both of the earlier versions.--Dave Jenkinson CM Reviews (04/04/2014)

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
