Publisher's Description

This playful book captures just how tough life can be when you’re little. With little legs, it’s hard to win races. With little hands, you can’t open the cookie jar. And when you have a little mouth, nobody listens to you. Sometimes it seems like all your problems would be solved if you were just a little bigger. But sometimes, little is exactly the right size.

Featuring delightful artwork and a relatable message, Jonathan Bentley’s book will resonate with readers both big and little.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
"A sweet book."

Booklist (online)
"This simple yet imaginative story is enhanced by sunny mixed-media artwork, especially wordless spreads featuring a monster-costumed older brother chasing the gleeful protagonist and rewarding him with cookies and a wagon ride. . . . A good choice for toddler storytimes."
Waking Brain Cells (blog)
"A delightful book that shows littler ones that they have advantages too."

The Horn Book
 "Preschool audiences will be drawn in by Bentley’s relatable, to-the-point text and expressive, cleanly composed art. The illustrations, a combination of watercolor, pencil, and ’scanned textures,’ play up the silliness as they show the tot alongside enormous friendly animals. . . . The story follows a satisfying arc; the final illustration shows the siblings playing happily together on the little one’s terms — and, finally, with a cookie."
School Library Journal
 "Young children are often frustrated when they cannot do the fun thing the big kids do. Bentley’s sweet story about a little boy who envies his big brother may help. . . . Bentley’s watercolor and pencil drawings invite readers into the mind of the child and his animated toy animals. . . . A strong addition to collections serving preschool audiences."
