Big and Littleby John Stadler
Through the clever use of gatefold flaps, the reader
WELCOME to the big top and get ready to experience a spectacular show, hosted by our mouse emcee! Will Ellie the elephant be able to jump from a very tall ladder into a tiny glass of water? The suspense mounts as Ellie climbs up, gets nervous, can't look down and then jumps . . . right into the glass of water.
Through the clever use of gatefold flaps, the reader will learn that what seemed big (Ellie) is really little, and what seemed little (our mouse host) is really big.
This simple story can be used on many levels - as a novelty book, as an early reader, and as a literacy tool for those who cannot read English, since the story tells itself through John Stadler's wonderful expressive illustrations.

Ellies daring feat will have your toddler on the edge of her pillow, my 20 mos old Violet screams 'don't fall Ellie!'
My son just turned two and asks to "read" this several times a day! He has memorized every page and we have to take it with us everywhere. BUY THIS BOOK!
My two year old LOVES this book. He can recite each page from memory and his animated expressions are a joy to watch. We've given this book to many other children! You can't go wrong.
