So Big and So Small

So Big and So Small

Next to a speck of sand, you're huge. But gaze up into the night sky with its millions of stars, and suddenly you're tiny. So which is true? Are you big or little?

Author John Coy captures the whimsical poetry of a child's perspective as he looks at everything gigantic and minuscule in the universe to arrive at a surprising conclusion: kids are both big and little--just the right size to be exactly who they're meant to be.
