*New Children's Book* You Are (Not) Small by Anna Kang Illustrated by Christopher Weyant {Giveaway}

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

Sometimes I think grown-ups forget how big the world looks to a little kid. Of course, it's all about perspective but to the little ones in our lives, we must look pretty darn big sometimes. The new children's book You Are (Not) Small by Anna Kang is great for back to school time because it can help alleviate kids fears of being the smallest kids around and venturing into a new world with lots of bigger people around. The perspective in this unique book can help the littler humans in our lives remember that they're not always the smallest after all.

This book is illustrated by Christopher Weyant using simple and unique pictures that are bright and colorful and are sure to capture a child's attention.
My youngest son, who being the "smallest" in our family and who seems to have to look up to see everyone, really liked the little fuzzy pink characters who show up about halfway through the book. When they parachute onto the page, it puts a smile on his face.
You Are (Not) Small is great to read to preschool and kindergarteners, and easy enough for the kids just a little older to read on their own.

*************************************
Two fuzzy creatures can't agree on who is small and who is big, until a couple of surprise guests show up, settling it once and for all!

The humor is wry and original, and it touches upon an issue that all small children think about: how big am I compared to the rest of the world? Publishers Weekly gave it its first review saying "Read it and giggle."



Christopher Weyant’s work has been published worldwide in books, newspapers, magazines, and online. His cartoons are in permanent collection at The Whitney Museum of American Art and The Morgan Library & Museum in New York City. 
Anna Kang received her MFA from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. You Are (NOT) Small is their first children’s book; they are currently at work on a sequel. They live with their children in New Jersey.

  2. I think this would be a perfect book for my twin nephew and niece. I think kids are always fascinated by the concepts of big and small and this book helps them think about them in new ways.

  4. What a fun looking book! I think my daughter would really appreciate the sentiment-she is always frustrated by being the youngest and struggles to find a balance between being younger and wanting to do things slightly above her ability.

  5. I think the grandkids would love this book. Yes, I remember when the world seemed so big and everything was too high for me to reach yet back then... I thought, I could reach the stars if I tried hard enough.

  8. When I was a kid, I was always the smallest one and couldn't wait to grow up. This would be a great story for any child.

  18. I was a small kid, and a book like this, pointing out that size is always relative, would have been fun and a confidence-booster for me.

  22. This book would be perfect for my son. He is small for his age and really self-conscious about it, especially around others his age.
