BIG: A Little Story About Respect And Self-Esteem

Sometimes It Takes So Little To Be BIG.

“A giant of a fable aimed at kids who frequently feel small, overlooked and like they just don’t matter.” Rating: 5.0 stars from Readers’ Favorite

Circus Wilson has many famous performers: jugglers, acrobats, lion-tamers, and clowns galore. Fire-eaters and knife-throwers thrill the spectators at every small village when the circus comes to town. Lee is one of the most talented of artists. He is a juggler extraordinaire and an acrobat who has mastered the four-time somersault among his other skills, but Lee has one problem.

He is little.

Lee is a flea, and while he wears sparkling and distinctive yellow pants, the audience never really can see him, only those pants. Lee doesn’t care that he isn’t the fastest or the most dangerous or even the funniest act in the circus. He just wants to be seen. He wants to be big.

One day he takes a decision that will change his life forever.

See how Lee’s defection causes so much uproar in the Circus Wilson. Lee does matter, and watching Director Wilson as he searches for Lee is entertaining indeed. Where could a flea be hiding, anyway?

The vivid color illustrations of this book make reading very easy and funny. The text is simple and partly repetitive, suitable for early age learning. A book to help children who feel overlooked and like they just don’t matter.

For kids ages 3+.
