HARPERCOLL

A gracefully appropriate addition to the duo’s superb collection.” Kirkus

The eighth hilarious picture book by the #1 New York Times bestselling team of Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell helps little people communicate in a big person's world.

With grown-up words like cooperate, respect, patience, and considerate, a large, boisterous family celebrates the power of language and discovers that words—big or little—are the bridge that connects us all.

I know some Big Words.
I'll teach them to you. 
Although you are small,
you can use Big Words too.

Big Words aren't scary.
They're big fun to learn.
I was taught once
and now it's your turn.

LOVE 'Big Words for Little People' because the big words are woven into a narrative about the reader. It's fun to look at the illustrations but more than that, the words are instructive and illustrative for a child to live successfully in the world: 'privacy', 'consequence', 'cooperate', 'inappropriate', 'patience', 'persevere'.

5 star Kudos to the author!

These words are not as complex as I was hoping for--none of them were new to my 3.5yo. Cute, detailed pictures, but the rhyming sometimes felt quite forced and the meter off.
