I was delighted when Annick Press decided to make Red is Best available as a board book, and even moreso when I discovered this photo on flickr.
This year Annick decided to make Big or Little? available as a board book, too. I’ve changed some of its words so the book’s very young readers will relate to what makes its narrator feel big – and little. And Jennifer A. Bell is now hard at work on new illustrations.
For an author or illustrator (or publisher), there’s nothing quite like seeing a young reader absorbed in a picture book you’ve helped create. So I hope when the book comes out next year, someone will send me a photo like this one, of their little reader reading Big or Little?.
