Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Three funny, spirited board books by Leslie Patricelli explore opposites. In BIG Little, heads are BIG, but toes are little. Ladies are BIG but ladybugs are little. Clever pairings, bold graphic art and an expressive toddler in diapers make the concepts fun. The other titles are Quiet Loud ("Crayons are quiet. Pots and pans are LOUD") and Yummy Yucky ("Spaghetti is yummy. Worms are yucky"). (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Patricelli has a trio of board books (Big Little, Quiet Loud, and Yummy Yucky) featuring a young diapered lad with one lock spiraling up from the middle of his head. In this particular book, there are a series of comparisons between things that are quiet versus those that are loud. "Fishies are quiet. Doggies are loud." The comparisons are ones that kids would encounter such as snow being quiet while a rainstorm is loud; sniffles are quiet but sneezes are loud; birds are quiet and airplanes are loud. Although the latter is really not exactly true other factors enter into play such as your position relative to the bird or plane. It is eclectic and at times a bit strange in its choice of comparisons. Not a book that will appeal to everyone. 2003, Candlewick Press, Ages 1 to 3.

My 2 sons, 5 and 3 years old, LOVE this book. They laugh so hard when we get to the last page and they see the picture of the stinky sock. My son took this book for his show and tell because he wanted to share this book with all his friends.

One in a series of books to reinforce opposite concepts. Young kids love this as a read-aloud, especially when it's time to read about things that are LOUD!! Illustrations are simple but adorable.

My daughter is 11 months old and she LOVES this book! It caught my eye in the bookstore, and since my husband and I have read it about a trillion times. We since then have purchased yummy YUCKY and no no YES YES. My daughter is drawn into the pictures, not overwhelmed by tons of words. She laughs when we sniffle for quiet and pretend to sneeze for LOUD. It allows you to interact with them and say what ever you want. I know that she will like this book for a long time and we will continue to throw our own narratives into the stories, getting more and more complex as she grows.. but for now simple and colorful is enough for her!! I highly recommend these books to anyone wanting to read a story in less than 3 minutes, and for those wanting to create conversations that last far more than the length of the book! (We even catch her screaming and say-- Wow your screaming is LOUD!!).

My two year old absolutely loves this book. Every hour of the day it seems like she wants me to read this book to her. With its funny comparisons and cute artwork with bold colors, its fun to read, and I always enjoy anything that makes my baby smile! I will definately order the other books because I know my baby will love them!
