Being Big

Being Big


Written by Sharen Liddell and Illustrated by Yvonne Cathcart


Barbara learns that being big can be fun!

Barbara is big. She has big hands and big feet and she is taller and weighs more than any of her friends. She is so big that normal-kid running shoes don't fit. Learning how Barbara comes to accept herself and to like how she looks will be fun for young readers.

"...the story is concisely told and nicely complemented by Yvonne Cathcart's familiar large, bright, cheery pictures. An attractive, clean book design presents text and illustrations to good effect." - Quill & Quire
