Dreaming Big

Dave Engledow does it again with THE LITTLE GIRL WHO WANTED TO BE BIG. All the little girl wants to do is to get bigger because she's sick of hearing "you're to little". So, instead, she thinks of herself as bigger and all of the ways she can help.

She can help fix things and is never a burden. She is bigger than everything and can do anything. As she goes and goes, one thing interferes with her work: sleep. The girl is soon tucked into her bed, dreaming of being big.

I love the humor in this story and how fun the photographs are. This was a fun bedtime story to read to my daughter. Dave has a gift in photography and story-telling and I'm so happy he's shared it with us. Talent is obvious here and I can't wait for more!


Final Verdict: This is the perfect bedtimes story and is also good for fans of humor and those who dream of being older.
