Big or Little? Kathy Stinson, Jennifer A. Bell

This is a board book that begs the question:  Are you a big girl or a little girl?  This little girl is some of each!

Annick Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

This is a cute board book with a little one trying to decide if she's big or little.  She knows when she ties her shoe she's big.  But when she can't find the arms on her shirt and has to ask for help, she knows she's little.  She has a couple more big and little moments to get the point across.  The illustrations are bright and colorful and show you a very sweet young girl.

If you have a young one growing up, they will love this book.  They'll probably be pointing out big and little things they can do!

My favorite part is at the end when the girl admits she doesn't mind being little if it means being carried to bed by Mom.  Being carried to bed is the best thing in the world when you're small.  I still remember my Dad carrying me in to bed after we came back from visiting my Grandparents who lived out of town.  Special moments like that don't disappear...
