In this empowering picture book, one spunky heroine realizes she is anything but small. 
The city is big and I am small. 
While spending the day with her mom and baby sibling, one little girl feels overwhelmed by the big world that surrounds her. Tall buildings, noisy cars, and hungry ducks who want to eat her lunch all make her feel like she is small. Until . . . she dreams big by being an artist, plays big and makes the winning shot, and swings big because she is brave. Soon she realizes she IS big, and nothing can stand in her way.

 

Reviews

"This is a fun little story that is definitely not small. Reading it, I could picture several small children identifying with the protagonist, and the multicultural city background was really a treat. Gina captured the diversity of cities and towns beautifully!”
