You Are (Not) Small

You Are (Not) Small
Written by Anna Kang, illustrated by Christopher Weyant

My rating: ★★★★

ISBN: 978-1477847725
Publisher: Two Lions
Date of publication: August 5, 2014
Age: 2 - 6 years

Themes: perspective, opposites, understanding

Who is the big one? Who is the small one? Two fuzzy creatures just can't seem to agree. Maybe some surprise guests can settle it once and for all. Also, I'm hungry.

So this book is the winner of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award and I am all for it! The text is very simple (an argument over big and small), but there is a lot of emotion in the characters and a bigger story being told than just what is in the words. The illustrations are also simple, but pack a big impact with facial expressions and actions. Plus, it's funny (I love funny!).

Why the Geisel Award? It's a book targeted at beginning readers, but packs so much into such simple text. Is it a silly sort of story? Yeah. But hey, it's funny and teaches about perspective. So! Give it a try!

Find it at your library or on Amazon
