Synopses & Reviews
How can I be big and little at the same time? This tender conversation between parent and child is a cheerful reminder that the best things come in all sizes.
Can a little girl be both big and little at the same time? Of course she can! She's little enough to ride piggyback, but big enough to hop down the stairs. . . . and she's little enough to sit on Mommy's lap, but big enough to wrap her arms tightly around her. Big or little, she's the present Mommy always wanted--a big present in a little package! Cheerful text and cozy illustrations capture the love between a mother and child in a winning picture book sure to strike a familiar chord with little ones and grown-ups alike.
A mother provides examples of how her toddler is both big and little, including little enough to ride through the park in a stroller but big enough to make the pigeons fly away.
