Me Tall, You Small by Lilli L'Arronge

We received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.

Story: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Illustrations: ⭐⭐⭐

Me Tall, You Small is a series of playful vignettes in the daily life of a pair of weasels, parent and child. Whether they are having a bubble bath, kicking a soccer ball, or eating ice cream together, simple paired phrases showcase their loving—and amusingly realistic—relationship. After a fall: You boo-boo. Me bandage. At bedtime: Me tired. You wired.

A Sweet Book Showing a Parents Unconditional Love

I expected we would be reading a book about opposites, but what we got instead was a heartwarming book about the love between a parent and a child. Especially nice is the message that a parent has unconditional love, and the little annoyances of having a small child who sometimes doesn't get with the program are indeed little, especially compared to the love that a parent feels.

I am normally put off by books that are almost entirely made up of bad grammar, even if it is for fun, but I don't really feel that way about Me Tall, You Small. The word play is catchy, sweet, and just a lot of fun.  The illustrations are simple but ones that will appeal to small children.

Evelyn's Reaction

Loved it!  Listened attentively, pointed to several of the pictures with a nice wide smile, and wanted an immediate reread.
