S is for Small

These two books beautifully explore the theme of being small in a big world.

Something Big

by Sylvie  Neeman

illustrated by Ingrid Godon

Originally published in French under the title: Quelque Chose de Grand. This profound book tells the story of a little boy who wishes to do something he can control. In his search to explain himself to his father who tries to relate, the boy stumbles upon the answer as they walk on the beach The simple illustrations beautifully show that good guidance will lead to independence.

Small Blue and the Deep Dark Night

by Jon Davis

This book explores the fear of the dark. By suggesting alternatives, to what Small blue thinks she may have seen, Big Brown convinces her that the dark does not need to be a scary place. A great bedtime story with beautiful illustrations.
