Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The amphibious star of Smile a Lot! by Nancy Carlson now coaches readers by his example to Think Big! as he challenges older kids to a game at recess, volunteers to help his teacher, and dribbles the ball past a larger opponent. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Vinney, a small green frog, is unhappy because he is nicknamed "shrimp" at school. He is too short to see over the counter in the lunchroom, too little to defend the ball at recess, and has the smallest part in the class play-a ladybug. When his mom suggests that he "THINK BIG," his self-esteem skyrockets, and he finds that he can do everything he was too timid to try before. But he also realizes that being small has some advantages. He can scoot under a pair of legs to score a basketball and can still snuggle on mom's lap. The positive message, endearing characters, and cheerful cartoon illustrations give this book great child appeal.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Vinney is tired of being overlooked-literally. Being short means Vinney, a bright green frog, is picked last in sports, ends up with a bad part in the school play and even gets called names. His mother offers some simple, but smart advice. Think big, she tells him. Sure enough, Vinney is rewarded for his new attitude: He jumps to reach the chapter books on the library shelves; he challenges the older kids to a game of four-square at recess; and he even gets extra pizza at lunch. However, he also learns that being small has its advantages, as he darts between the legs of his opponent in a basketball game to score. Bright illustrations, featuring a menagerie of animals, are the perfect accompaniment to the positive message of reaching beyond obstacles while still realizing your own strengths. Though the solution is overly simple, it offers attitude, which might be enough for some. (Picture book. 4-7)
