Big and Littleby Samantha Berger, Pamela Chanko
An adoribla photographic picture book that shows that friendship, love and fun comes in both big and little packages.
Publishers WeeklyIn the board book Big and Little by Samantha Berger and Pamela Chanko, crisp, clear photographs and contrasting type demonstrates opposites. On separate spreads, for example, a child holds an adult's hand ("Big hand and little hand") and a baby elephant walks beneath her mother's belly ("Big elephant and little elephant").
Children's LiteratureIf it takes repetition to get a concept across then this board book is the one does it to emphasize big versus little. There is a big polar bear followed by a much smaller one, a large hand holding a child's small one, a big dog and a little dog, and a big elephant with a baby one. It is one of the better pictures in the book, because the baby is standing underneath the larger elephant and that really shows the size difference. The most difficult one to figure out is the picture of a big and little sand castle. It took a few seconds to see that the little pile of sand to the right of the big castle was supposed to represent a smaller one. The ending seems a bit of a twist. It shows a set of twin boys with a comment "Both the same size!" 2003 (orig. 1999),
