Start with something that is great big. A bumble bug?

Then add more animals -- two great big chickens? -- for a sing songy read-aloud perfect for the youngest reader. The best part of this colorful book of opposites is that it never ends!

Do you know something that is great big? Do you know something that is tiny little?

About the Author:

Few writers have been as attuned to the concerns and emotions of childhood as Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). A graduate of Hollins College and the progressive Bank Street College of Education, she combined her literary aspirations with the study of child development. Her unique ability to see the world through a child's eyes is unequaled. Her many classic books continue to delight thousands of young listeners and readers year after year.

Muy pocos escritores de literatura infantil han logrado captar las emociones e inquietudes de la niñez como Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). Sus numerosos y ya clásicos libros y grabaciones continúan deleitando a lectores y oyentes de todas las edades.



Clement Hurd (1908-1988) graduated from Yale University and studied painting in Paris in the 1930s with Fernand Léger and others, where he developed his characteristic style using flat, vibrant colors. His work caught the eye of Margaret Wise Brown, and their collaboration produced some of the most enduring children's books of our time. Clement Hurd was married to Edith Thacher Hurd, and together they also created many beloved books for children.

Clement Hurd (1908–1988) se graduó de Yale University. Estudió pintura en París en los años 1930 con Fernand Léger, entre otros.
