As a kid, every moment seems so big. As an adult, we rush past the small events. This book, with its lyrical prose and lush images, reminds us to take the time to slow down, speed up, and share in all the moments inbetween.
A little kid celebrates how her eyes are like her mother's, her grandmother's, and her baby sister's. A beautiful book of belonging.
Reminiscent of the famous fabulist Aesop, Nadine Robert tells a classic story of patience and smarts versus greed. We all know how it ends. So much credit needs to be given to Sang Miao. Her artwork makes this book an instant classic. It's so good!
This is about growing up, and finding new versions of yourself, and the people who bear witness to your metamorphosis. If you have sisters, I’m begging you to read it. Also, I mean – look at the cover.
Yeah, the title got me too. I cried laughing at this book but that's no surprise because it has poop in the title - it knows it's funny. But then you flip the page and learn a valuable lesson about accepting yourself, sticking up for others, and finding the weird in everybody. You'll learn about different insects and have fun and warm your heart all in a matter of a few colorfully illustrated pages. Give it a try!
