Recent Reader Reviews:

"Awesome book! We are in love with this book! Our son is being raised bilingual since half of the collective family lives in the Philippines, and it hasn't exactly been easy to find good quality childrens books in Tagalog. We saw this one, saw the great price for it, and we thought "Lets give it a try!" and we're not disappointed one bit. The story is sweet and simple, and even as a non-tagalog speaker I was able to understand it a little, which says a lot since never had a lot of luck learning the language! As an artist, I love love LOVE the art in this book, I think its not only beautiful, but perfect for children. My son spent a lot of time just studying every colorful page. We read it twice in the first sitting because he was so happy! He's not yet 1, so getting him to sit still for story time is tough, and this book was such a hit he sat through it with nothing but a big smile and lots of pointing to the stuff he liked on the pages. I highly recommend this book :) Get it get it get it!" -- H. S., 07.01.2014

"This is a sweet book with beautiful artistic illustrations. Really loved the unique artwork. I bought it to help work on our French with our two young boys so it's nice that the story is told in both French and English on each page. My French isn't very good (working on it) but I still found this easy to read & pronounce to them out loud." -- Stefan H., 08.01.2014

"Cute book for kids - I enjoy reading this to my daughter. She loves the large characters..." -- Michele R., 09.01.2014

"Cute, simple story with adorable, modern illustrations. First of all, I'm thrilled to see an affordable book in European Portuguese. There aren't a lot of options in this country for any Portuguese, let alone European, so I usually have to pay extra for imported books. This book seemed to be well translated, and not a Google Translate hack job like some books I've found. Now, the book itself. The illustrations are really sweet, and seem relatable for a child but not cheesy. They really drew me in. The story itself is a simple one, in which a little girl is shocked to hear that she's little, and as she asks for more and more opinions, she finds that it's all about perspective. The moon thinks she's small, and bugs think she's large. There aren't a lot of words on each page which, as someone without a lot of reading-out-loud stamina, I think is nice." -- F. C., 26.11.2013

"I am constantly searching for Panjabi books for my one-year-old twins. I was nearly certain that I had bought every Panjabi kids book available on Amazon, but I found this ten or more pages into a generic Punjabi or Panjabi search. It is a beautiful book. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the story is very sweet and silly. My husband is the Panjabi one in the family, but I can make out simple things in Panjabi. I read this to our son in Panjabi with my mother-in-law half-laughing, half-beaming with happiness from a few feet away. I had to keep asking her for meanings of unfamiliar words (like nikki). It was great fun, and now I know five or six words that I didn't before." -- C. M., 28.12.2013

"The storyline is fairly simple and repetitive, perfect for a small child. [...] The drawings are really amazing - naive, colorful and full of imagination. My baby daughter loves them!" -- Elle, 20.12.2013
