THE VERY LITTLE BOY by Phyllis Krasilovsky

Email this review


The Very Little Girl offered young female listeners perspective on their own growth in images they could readily identify with. Now comes a book especially (and ideally) for little boys. In the beginning this little boy was smaller than a cornstalk, a baseball bat and daddy's workbench. He was too little to join the Hallowe'en parade, to feed the elephants or to reach the pedals on his bicycle. Then one day, He grows too big for his special chair and bed. But best of all he can wheel his very little baby sister in her carriage. Similar in theme to Robert Kraus' The Littlest Rabbit (Harper), this will find a universal audience among pre-schoolers opening their eyes to personal change.
