Everyone has felt small, or inconsequential, at some point in their life. Sometimes it can feel as if life, with all of its distractions and possible dangers, is just too big for any of us to really make a difference. You Are (Not) Small, written by Anna Kang and illustrated by Christopher Weyant, shows us that being small, and feeling like you don’t make a difference in the world, is all about perspective. In the story a pair of fuzzy creatures meet each other in the woods, one bigger and one smaller. But when more fuzzy creatures begin to appear, all in varying sizes, what exactly constitutes as “small” and “big” really starts to become blurred. If I’m the same size as all of my friends am I “big” or just normal sized? Even though on the surface this is a book that cleverly describes the difference between small and big for children, looking deeper there are certainly important lessons for adults as well.
