In this book Janey kept being told she wasn't big enough. This book has some social-emotional concepts. Janey gets fed up and decides she's not going to do what she is supposed to do either. Her mother and father teach her that she must do what she is supposed to do and understand that we can't always do what we want when we want it.




Learning Experience:
This book could be used in morning story time. The teacher would ask the students if they were ever told they were not big enough to do something

Jones, C. (2010). Maybe When I'm Bigger (p. 32). Little Boost.

Janey is a little girl who is tired of hearing "maybe when you are bigger" whenever she wants to do something fun. Instead of just not doing what she wants, Janey decides to use that phrase back on her parents. When she is told to do something her response is "maybe when I'm bigger". This book would be great for younger kids because the phrase is said a ton.

An activity would be to set up a center that has only things that adults do.

So cute! If Janey isn't big enough to go off the high dive or ride the roller coaster or take a taxi to the mall, then she's not big enough to clean her room or eat her vegetables either! But fortunately, Janey's parents are on to her. I used this new book for my "Growing Things" storytime this week.

Loved this cute story about growing up and also being ok with staying a kid for "just a little while longer." Wonderful pictures and hilarious dialog between the alligator and her family. Great picture books for kids - and grown-up too!!

Little girl isn't big enough to do fun stuff so she decides she's not big enough to do boring stuff, either. Until it back fires.

I thought this was kindof cute. It seems like Janey isn't big enough to do anything fun so she decides she won't do the boring stuff little kids can do either.

When Janey gets tired of hearing that she is not big enough to do the fun things she wants to do, she decides that she is not big enough to do boring things too.
