I Don’t Want to be Small
Laura Ellen Anderson, Laura Ellen Anderson
NO! I do NOT want to be so small!
I wish I’d keep growing so I can be tall.
This little boy is fed up with being so little. He wants to be as tall as his friends and his big brother. But when he loses his teddy bear up a tree, not even his new tall friend can get it back for him. Maybe with a little bit of help they can reach the bear together …
A fun and inspiring tale about learning to love who we are, no matter what size. A perfect picture book for little people who don’t want to be so little! From the brilliant Laura Ellen Anderson – the author/illustrator of the brilliantly fun I Don’t Want Curly Hair and the bestselling Amelia Fang series
Rhyming text and funny illustrations add to the enjoyment of this book about self-worth and self-esteem. * Irish Examiner * This is a great book to read aloud and share, and humorous illustrations make it a book that can be read and enjoyed time and time again with lots of laughs. * Armadillo Magazine * The humour in this book is super and very appealing, as are the rhyming couplets. Lots of the action is in the illustrations - comic pictures of children with expressive faces. The theme of being able to accept your body as it is remains current and important, as is the need for friends who are willing to help: 'We play games and laugh for the rest of the day - I'm small and she's tall and we're perfect that way.' Good fun! * Books For Keeps *
