The return of a big favorite about being little.

When you're really young, it can be tough to figure out if you're a little kid or a big kid. So it is for one boy named Toby, who sometimes feels big, like when he pours his own milk, but sometimes feels little, like when he spills it.

Mom and Dad make Toby feel more grown up when they let him help wash the car, but when his older brother says to go away he feels little again. Sharing toys with his younger sister makes Toby feel big. What about wearing bunny-feet pajamas? That makes you little, right? Not when you're too big for them. All in all, Toby decides that he wants to be a big kid, but sometimes he likes being little too.

Still in demand after 25 years, Big or Little? is back with revised, shorter text nicely suited to little listeners, and playful new illustrations that are fun for all. Full of the everyday struggles and triumphs of growing up, this favorite story is sure to inspire readers of any size.
