Too Big by Ingri D'Aulaire

Book Description

This book for the littlest ones by the celebrated husband-and-wife team of Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire features in this simple, silly tale, the trademark d'Aulaire artistry. But the colors are bold primaries and the language elementary enough to be memorized by a toddler, who will delight in its special humor and enjoy joining in on the refrain: "Too big!" Little Ola, the hero of Too Big has a shock of blond hair, a devoted dog, and a frisky cat, but today he's discovering that he's too big to do lots of things he wants to do: he's too big to put on his hat, too big be lifted up by his mother, and even too big to ride on his dog's back. One day, he might just find that there's quite a bit a big boy can do after all. Meanwhile he daydreams about the adventures he'll go on when he grows up.
