Foreword Reviews

So Big and So Small

An observant boy measures himself against tiny marvels, like sand on a beach, a cardinal perched on a branch, and his sleeping baby brother. In some senses, he knows, he’s getting big—but not when compared to mountains, yawning lions, or the spacious night sky. Subtle details in the illustrations, from the boy’s science fair award to the natural textures of a far-off landscape, help to drive home the book’s message of humility and awe.
