PRAISE FOR Big and Small, Room for All by Jo Ellen Bogart:
“Bogart presents a way for young children to explore the concepts of big and small in a way few picture books address…. Both text and illustrations have a modest sense of the sublime in their subject, one that comes across clearly. A necessary purchase that surpasses the ordinary fare.”—Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews
“…not to downplay the beauty of the text itself. [Jo Ellen Bogart’s] simple rhymes take the reader on a journey from the deep expanse of the universe to the tiny organisms revealed under a microscope…. Stunning.”—Starred Review, Quill & Quire
“Word choice is highly suitable for the earliest independent readers. This book will serve as a springboard for discussing the way children perceive size in the natural world.”—School Library Journal
“Introducing small children to a big idea, this handsome picture book uses an open-ended approach that could lead to good discussions.”—Booklist
“Gorgeous watercolors and simple text convey a range of sizes, from swirling galaxies to magnified microorganisms…. Such comparisons…continue throughout this thought-provoking book.” —Book Links
