Book Review - Never Too Little to Love
About the Book
Tiny Too-Little loves someone who's very, very tall, and Tiny wants a kiss. What if he stands on his tiptoes on top of a thimble? What if he stands on his tiptoes on top of a matchbox on top of a thimble? Clever cut-away pages show Tiny's precarious pile growing higher and higher, while the object of his affection stays just out of reach. When the teetering stack finally falls with a crash, will his hopes be dashed? How can a tiny mouse get the kiss he needs?
My Take on the Book
Jeanne Willis and Jan Fearnley have written a perfect story for a young child. Children are tiny compared to adults. Do we ever think about the difficulty they encounter when they want to do something that requires height?
The little mouse shows determination and perseverance as it tries to find a way to give a kiss to his friend who is tall. As you read the story, you can feel yourself cheering for the little mouse to find the right things to give him the boost he needs to reach his goal.
Finally at the end of the story the mouse's friend realizes the little mouse cannot reach him and he bends down to meet him. You and your child will be delighted to see who the friend is and the challenge to reach him to give him a kiss. It is a sweet story to share with your young child.
