Big and Small

Publisher: Barefoot Books

Review

It is never too early to introduce some information about how an apple grows from a seed, or how a shark survives by eating fish, and this lovely little board book is an excellent way to ease some non-fiction facts into even the youngest babies’ book routine. This is a clever addition to the usual baby books that only cover size as comparison.

Britta Teckentrup’s beautiful bright illustrations depict one big thing and one small thing on each spread – how they connect is for you to discuss. From a lion and cat to a tree and an acorn, the relationship changes on each page and reveals something interesting about the natural world. Clear images on thick card pages are great for babies to look at and handle as they learn to navigate a book.
