Joyce Dunbar's gentle text and Debi Gliori's bold, pastel illustrations combine in Tell Me What It's Like To Be Big, giving this lovely book all the hallmarks of a nursery classic.
Willa the toddler rabbit wakes up early one morning and decides that she is going start doing things for herself. First she tries to put on her clothes (without a great deal of success), then she decides to help herself to breakfast (disastrous), and eventually she decides that she is just too little to do all these things for herself and has to ask big brother Willoughby to help her. As Willoughby starts explaining to Willa what it's like to be big, and all the responsibility that comes with growing up, Willa decides that being little isn't quite so bad after all...
Any small child who cannot wait to grow up and do things for themselves will find a great deal of fun and comfort in this charming picture book, and will instantly empathise with Willa's plight. A fantastic, magical and unforgettable read for small children. (Ages 1-3) --Susan Harrison [via]
