Start with something that is great big. A bumble bug?Then add more animals -- two great big chickens? -- for a sing songy read-aloud perfect for the youngest reader. The best part of this colorful book of opposites is that it never ends!Do you know something that is great big? Do you know something that is tiny little?

Reader's Thoughts


A book of opposites that circles back on itself. I like the old-fashioned illustrations. I have to think on how to effectively use it for a storytime, however.


Harper seemed to like the pictures of the elephants most and made her elephant noise and raised her arm like an elephant trunk when the book showed or talked about elephants. She also liked the pictures of fish and made her fish noise and faces. The dogs and pigs were amusing to her too. She liked the illustrations.


High contrast pictures with simple size comparisons.


I hate Goodnight Moon but love this one! Go figure.
