Big and Small

by Alvin Granowsky, Mary Lonsdale, Al Granowsky

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Trees can be big, some buildings are big and certain animals such as elephants are also big. In contrast, bugs and butterflies are small. Throughout the text Granowsky compares things that are big and those that are small. He also introduces the concept of things getting smaller such as an ice-cream cone being eaten and a sweater that shrinks in the wash. Most interesting is the concept of perspective¾how things close seem big but at a distance appear quite small. The text is illustrated with photographs and drawings. Each book in the "My World" series is designed to help readers become writers. To that end there is a writing activity¾usually in the form of a question that can help kids launch their story. 2001, Copper Beech Books/Millbrook Press,
