Big or Little?

This is a cute picture book about how one child compares big and little.
Sometimes the little boy feels little and sometimes he feels big. He feels small when he can’t reach the button at his friend’s house, can’t find his socks, wets his bed, rode his bike onto the street when he wasn’t suppose to, and when his bunny PJs no longer fit. He feels big when he can tie his shoes, zip his jeans, button his shirt by himself, bring his book back to the library, makes his own breakfast, takes care of his little sister, he holds the door open for someone else, and when his Dad and he talks about space. And he feels good because he is growing and he is mostly big.
This story is playful and adorable. It will be admired and loved by all kids who read it. And every child will be able to relate to wanting to grow up and be big!
