Summary
"Is the bear smaller than the mountain? Is the kitten bigger than the ball? Find out in Delphine Chedru's wonderfully illustrated book for preschoolers. The text invites children to chime in with who they think is bigger, and is a perfect stepping stone for kids on the brink of learning to read. The bright, graphic illustrations will catch the attention of children and parents alike and have everyone shouting for joy when they find out who's the biggest."--Provided by publisher

Review
/* Starred Review */ Bold pictures and simple language help beginning readers (or wannabe readers) discover the answer to the title question. The background of each page is a single bright color. After a brief introduction ("This book will teach you how to describe size....Have fun!"), there are 14 two-page spreads, each following the same pattern: On the left-hand page, a few words of text in answer to the titular question; on the right-hand page, a very simple illustration. " ‘I am!' trumpets the elephant to the butterfly." Indeed, the blue elephant is so big that their trunk spills over onto the left-hand page, while the small yellow butterfly flutters above the elephant's head. The bear has the same message for the honey pot, as does the leaf to the ant, the cloud to the kite, and the garden to the flower: "I am!" Chedru tucks an additional lesson into her simple concept with the use of various evocative verbs. Thus, the umbrella "sighs" to the raindrop, the fishbowl "gurgles" to the goldfish, and the flower "smiles" to the bee. Other pairings include a tree and a squirrel, a hammer and a nail, and a pan and a grain of rice. The final, winning comparison speaks right to readers. Chedru's matte, posterlike illustrations are likewise playful, often—but never completely—approaching abstraction in their use of negative space. Perfectly targeted to preschoolers, Chedru's basic palette and simple shapes invite young children to learn. (Picture book. 3-5) (Kirkus Reviews, May 1, 2018)
