The World Is Big and I'm So Small
From morning to bedtime, this delightful poem follows a day in the life of a child. The world of adults seems very big but his imagination brings the everyday objects around him playfully to life. From the mobile above his bed to the water his mother washes his face with, from his high chair at breakfast to the stairs that become a mountainside, he explores the fun hidden in the most unlikely places! But the biggest adventure comes when a troop of knights march right out of his storybook. And who's their king? His own father, home from work at last.
Joe Servello's illustrations perfectly depict the wonder that children bring to the most ordinary objects.
