Adults may see many things in life as small, but to young children, those little things aren’t small at all. This story, told in humorous rhyme from a child’s perspective, helps remind us all in what a big world we live. Alison Davis Lyne’s illustrations burst out of the book, from a magnified beetle to Aunt Mildred’s face, which fills the page waiting for a not-so-little kiss. Covering a wide range of childhood experiences, from scary ones such as going to the doctor for a “little shot” to loving ones such as receiving a “little note” from Mom in a lunchbox, this is a book with which all children can truly connect.
