Not Small! There's No Such Thing As Little by Le Uyen Pham
EVERYONE SAYS I'M LITTLE.
I REALLY DON'T AGREE.
IF ONLY THEY COULD SEE WHAT I SEE
WHEN THEY LOOK AT ME.
A pair of kids with rising expectations set out to show that size is definitely relative: a single candle may seem small, just a little light,
but a close look through it shows that it can be as big as a lighthouse.
A small seedling tree in a pot can grow to be a generous tree.--with apples for all. A little goldfish might look small in its bowl, but also become part of a huge, shark-shaped school of fish. And a small squiggle on an artist's easel can easily become part of a large painting at the museum--when you really look into it!
LeUyen Pham's latest, There's No Such Thing as Little (Alfred A. Knopf Books, 2015), uses clever die-cut pages and jolly cartoon kids that show that little things do grow, just like the narrators of this enticing toy and movable book, in which little things, seen in small cut-out circles can turn into big things with just a turn of the page.
