Big or small, somebody's size can sometimes get in the way of what they want to do. Sometimes, big and small works together. The concepts and sentences are incomplete and simple. However, it's a nice, quick read about comparisons, with fun illustrations of Sesame Street characters. The main characters are Bird Bird and Elmo. ( )

In this oh-so-easy-to-read introduction to spatial relationships, Big Bird and Small Bird discover that sometimes it's not easy being big and sometimes it's not easy being small. But sometimes it is.

This is a good book for the very young reader to get into. Especially if they are into Sesame Street Characters. You would think by the title that this is a story about Big Bird's problems being too big. But in actuality what the book is about is comparisons between big and small.

See? Not only does Big Bird have problems because he is too big, but Elmo has his own problems as well because he is too small. The book then goes into detail about comparing Big, Bigger and Biggest as well as describing Small, Smaller and Smallest.

So, other than the title being a little off in regards to what the book is really about, it still a good read for the youngsters. The print is a good size for them to follow with their fingers and sound out the words. The Illustrations match the actions the words portray.

I would recommend this book for the very young reader. ( )
