Reviews
In Cole's latest picture book, an object can be seen as big or little depending on context. The words "Big bug" appear on a double-page spread almost filled with a picture of a ladybug. The next spread, illustrating "Little bug / Big leaf," shows a smaller picture of the same ladybug on a large leaf. Each turn of the page takes the viewer farther away. The leaf is little compared with a nearby flower, but the flower is little next to a dog, which is dwarfed by a cow. After the "big" object pictured is the sky, the comparison vector shifts, and everything named is smaller than its predecessor. Well matched with the concept, the mixedmedia illustrations are simple and effective. Cole makes good use of changing perspectives in the skillfully composed paintings of rural scenes. Children will enjoy picking out the objects that appear in several illustrations, as they diminish or increase in size from page to page. An attractive addition to picture-book collections.--May 1, 2014 "Booklist "
