You are (not) small

Anna Kang, illustrated by Christopher Weyant
Hachette Children’s Books
ISBN: 9781444918311           RRP: $24.95

Two bears meet. One calls the other small. In return he calls the other big. A conversation takes place, each trying to prove a point. Enter two surprise characters, putting a different scale on everything and settling the matter. Life moves on – or does it? This uncomplicated story deals with an important lesson, that we can be different things to different people. The spare text unifies with bold illustrations to create this provocative realisation. Awarded the 2015 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award in the US for the most distinguished American book for beginning readers.
