Playing in the woods one day, Giant Baby Bear finds a very small... something. "I'm lost," cries the Very Small. "I want my mommy!" Intrigued and sympathetic, the gentle bear decides to take the tiny furry critter home to share his mommy. The Bear family welcomes him, feeding him dinner (one whole pea, five whole crumbs of bread, and one whole spoonful of milk), giving him a bath (in the soap dish), and creating a miniature playground out of matchboxes, cardboard tubes, hairbrushes, and pencils. This is all well and good, but the Very Small still misses his mommy and daddy. His cause seems hopeless, until Giant Baby Bear sneezes a giant sneeze, and sends Very Small flying out of the cave and over the treetops, right back to the very same spot in the woods where he had gotten lost. And guess who's there waiting for him!

This cozy tale of kindness and the unique pleasures of home will warm the cockles of Very Smalls and Very Bigs everywhere. Debi Gliori's Very Small is vaguely, pleasantly reminiscent of Maurice Sendak's Wild Things (Where the Wild Things Are), and her large and small perspectives will appeal to those readers who can identify with being little in a great big world. This marvelous and prolific author-illustrator team also created the bestselling Tell Me Something Happy Before I Go to Sleep. (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie Coulter
