Big or Little is 25 years old. It was first published in 1983. This is another book I didn’t read when it first came out cause I was a little to old for picture books. Michael really enjoyed the book alot.
This is a great story about growing up. Michael said that he could really relate to this story cause sometimes you are to little to do certain things but yet you are big enough to do other things.
Toby feels like he is big some days. Especially when he can pour his own milk, pushes #7 in the elevator, when he gets to shave with his dad, when he helps his mom wash the car, holding the door open, riding his bike to the part, being polite, remembering to bring his library book back on the right day, reading some words, printing his name, sharing his toys, having a birthday, pj’s that don’t fit and being able to stay up late.
The things that make Toby feel little is when he spills the milk, wetting his bed, having to sit in a car seat, getting lost at the grocery store, being scared of a dog, having a brother telling him to go away, an aunt who gives him bunny feet pjs, and having to be carried to bed when you fall asleep on the couch.
Michael likes to be little but he also likes to be big too.
This is another great book by Kathy Stinson. We are looking forward to reading more by her. She is a great Canadian author.
Thanks to Stella at Annick Press for sending us this classic children’s book it will be cherished for many years to come.
