You Are (Not) Small, written by Anna Kang and illustrated by Christopher Weyant. two lions, Amazon. $19.99 ages 2 and up
You are small.
I am not small.
They are just
You are big."7
Does size really matter?
Apparently it matters enough to this husband and wife team to consider it as a subject for their debut venture.
Two creatures: one big, one small; one purple, one orange. They meet on a grassy field, and a conversation is initiated. It is a back and forth about size, and the discrepancies between the two. Not to be deterred by the other's argument, the conversation continues...and finally, SHOUTING erupts! It could go on forever...
a giant blue foot stomps down with a BOOM! and separates the two feuding groups. A tiny pink parachutist drifts softly to earth. Both put an end to a seemingly eternal discourse concerning size.
Tired, satisfied that each is both big and small, and hungry, the two satisfied groups gather for lunch, leaving the newest two to themselves.
Leave it to the smallest to have a final say, and to leave the audience hooting!
It is written with just the right touch for young listeners! The cheery watercolor and ink artwork provides a perfect visual interpretation, leaving the audience with a smile and a warm, fuzzy feeling!
Don't miss both front and back covers.
