Charming story and pictures.

The illustrations are really pleasing to the eye. I loved the little girl and all her activities and I loved the dog, and all of the indoor and outdoor surroundings, and the mother and other people are okay too.

The story sure brought back memories, both of myself as little and of kids I’ve known once I was no longer little myself; being with children who are acting “little” is the best way to feel young!

When I got to the end of the story, which consists of the little girl telling her mother all of the reasons why she likes to be little, at first I thought that this was a book that adults would appreciate more than would little kids, but then I wracked my memories, and I’d have really liked this book as a young child. I think it’s fine for little kids, kids a bit older than little, and adults too. It's also a very sweet mother-daughter book.
