Win this lovable picture book AND bonus height chart for all little ones who wish they were bigger

I Don’t Want To Be Small is all about a boy who longs to grow up so he can be as tall as his friends and big brother – but soon realises that size isn't everything. 

We all remember what it was like to count the days until we turned a bigger number: 'No, I am NOT seven years old, I am seven and three-quarters!' (Or was that just us?)

Well, Laura Ellen Anderson's I Don't Want To Be Small (Bloomsbury) is the perfect picture book for little people who don't want to be so little! It's also, ultimately, a fun and inspiring tale about learning to love who we are, no matter what size.

Written and illustrated by the brilliant Laura Ellen Anderson, the author behind I Don't Want Curly Hair and the bestselling Amelia Fang, make sure you enter our competition to win her latest book to share with the family!
