Can a little girl be both big and little at the same time? Of course she can! She's little enough to ride piggyback, but big enough to hop down the stairs. . . . and she's little enough to sit on Mommy's lap, but big enough to wrap her arms tightly around her. Big or little, she's the present Mommy always wanted--a big present in a little package! Cheerful text and cozy illustrations capture the love between a mother and child in a winning picture book sure to strike a familiar chord with little ones and grown-ups alike.

PreSchool-A ginger-haired child spends the course of a day exploring the concept of her size in relation to the rest of the world. The conversation launches with the early morning question, "Mommy, am I little or am I big?" The answer is, "You're both, sweet pea." A series of patterned text follows: "You're little enough to crawl under your bed." "But I'm big enough to reach out and tickle you!" While this rapid switching from a child's to an adult's voice might be confusing to some young listeners and may indeed be a bit tedious to those older than three, Dockray's watercolor illustrations add some zest to the presentation. Their depiction of a very active preschooler, her patient kitty, and her woebegone, but obviously beloved panda will appeal to the storytime crowd; however, the intimate tone of the text makes this a more likely selection for one-on-one sharing.
