I like this book!  A great book for little ones to understand about becoming big. I can really see myself using this with my younger students. It asks questions like, "Are you Big yet? When, exactly, does BIG happen?" I

It talks about the ways every day that we can choose to be little or we can choose to be BIG.  
"One little day at a time"
"One little thought at a time"
"One little question"
"One little action"
"One little change"

I think this is a good book to discuss with kids and has a section at the end for have a discussion about choosing to be big;
"Growing up can be quite the adventure. Every year, you get older and you might grow taller and bigger too. But there are times when growing up feels like it takes forever."  
Then some questions are posed to help you have a conversation with your young one and makes for opening up a great dialogue starter.  

I liked this little book a lot and want to thank NetGalley for a digital copy to read for review. Highly recommended!

Such a great book! As a school counselor, I highly recommend this children's book in elementary schools. My students have enjoyed it and the message is inspiring without being over the top.

I received this arc from NetGalley for an honest review. An excellent bedtime story for kids about being a good person.

The Big Book about Being Big is a lesson for little ones about how "being big" is more than just a matter of size. It teaches the idea of being a better person through examples that show the impact on ourselves and the world around us when we're respectful, thoughtful, and kind.

I really like the illustrations in this book, and the message is fantastic -- growing up has a lot more to do with our insides than how tall we are on the outside.

4 solid stars for this great book.

Thanks to NetGalley and Little Pickle Press for providing me with a DRC of this book.

I received an electronic ARC from Little Pickle Press through NetGalley.
Delightful story to read as a family or by a young reader. What does it mean to be big? Paratore shares her thoughts on how to be a compassionate, caring young person. She emphasizes that big is more than a size or physical growth; big is being the best person you can be.
The cut paper  illustrations add depth to the text and draw the readers into the story.
Use to encourage young readers to believe in themselves and find ways to be supportive and caring.

Sort of reminds me of Dr. Suess! I liked the book and think littles will, too. Nice story about being true to oneself and caring about the world around them. Growing up to be good people. I liked the illustrations, too.
