Big Benby Sarah Ellis, Kim Lafave, Kim LaFave, Kim Lafave
His sister is a big kid in grade five. His brother is a big kid in grade three. Ben is a little kid in preschool. He can’t swim; he can’t use chopsticks; he can’t even see out of the car window. If only he could bring home a real report card like the older kids do, then Ben would be happy. But there are no report cards in preschool. Sometimes older siblings remember what it was like to be little, however, and Ben’s brother and sister are about to present Ben with his very own report card, grading him on all the activities that little brothers do best.
A triumph for little siblings everywhere, Big Ben was first published to great acclaim in 2001. Now the multi-award winning team of Sarah Ellis and Kim La Fave has adapted this classic for a board book presentation, the perfect format for readers with little hands—and bigger dreams.
