Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, 2015. Picture Book.
For anyone who has even felt bad about being small, Little Big is a sweet little picture about a little boy who imagines he has legs as long as a giraffe’s and hands as big as a gorilla’s. Although he sets out to highlight the benefits of being big, he discovers the benefits of being “perfectly little” along the way. With few words on each page and colorful illustrations, this book is ideal for toddlers and small children who “try to big but it never works.”
