Big & Small by Marion Murray


Big & Small introduces youngsters aged 0-4 to a mouse named Max who enjoys exploring the world around him. The illustrations will captivate a child's attention (and the parents who will read this to them).

Each page offers a new panoramic view of some aspect of nature from a mouse's perspective--one that a small child can relate to as the world can often seem very large to them. I love the "explorer" theme of Max enjoying discovering new things. This can be an excellent opportunity to encourage a child to explore their own world.


At just 12 pages, it's the perfect book to hold the attention of preschoolers and is particularly suited for a bedtime read. I highly recommend this sweet story that will encourage snuggles between caregivers and children. This would make a delightful gift for any new parent and deserves a place in both home and preschool libraries.
