Tell Me What Itís Like to Be Big

by Joyce Dunbar
Illustrated by Debi Gliori
Published by: Harcourt

Review by: Yvonne Gaudet

     ĎTell Me What Itís Like to Be Bigí is the question Willa, the little bunny, asks her big brother, Willoughby, as he helps her prepare breakfast and start her day. Willoughby is taller then his little sister, and so he can reach the breakfast cereal for her, and he can also reach the kitchen sink to wash up the dirty dishes. Willoughby explains to Willa, that he was born first and has had a longer time to grow big. He assures Willa that, in time, she too will be able to do more things for herself, like turning on the lamp and brushing her own teeth. He tells her that when she gets big she probably will be too old for some of her toys, and will have grown-up things instead. When Willa becomes a little uneasy with the idea of giving up her toys, Willoughby tells her she can keep her spotted teddy bear as long as she likes. The two youngsters then crawl back into bed with their mommy who tells them what she did when she was little. Mommy would climb into her momís bed if she got up to early in the morning. And with that, Willoughby and Willa both climbed into bed beside Mommy and drifted back off to sleep. 
     Cute and cuddly is how I would describe this book, which is suitable for ages 0-8, and any child who canít wait to be big. This book is illustrated by Debi Gliori in, what I believe, is watercolor. Another great book, with bright beautiful pictures, itís perfect for nap and bedtime.
