About the Author

Tiffany Golden is a writer, educator, and book designer. When teaching kids about writing, she is amazed by the inventive ways they generate ideas, and she tries to incorporate their magic, innocence, and honesty into her own writing. Her nephew, Jaiceon, is so imaginative and vibrant that he inspired this joyful story. Tiffany lives in Oakland, California. This is her debut picture book.

Sawyer Cloud is a freelance artist and the illustrator of several books for children. This story reminds Sawyer of her inner child, and she remains a big dreamer who wants to reach the stars and change the world. She loves stories like Jaiceon's because they allow her to imagine wild, fantastic places. She lives in Madagascar with her family.


"This is a fun read-aloud showing a loving and supportive family and the value of not wishing away the present. A good choice for libraries with young readers."
--School Library Journal

"Repetition throughout makes this story a strong choice for reading aloud [...] The longing to be bigger and more independent is a common desire of young children and will likely resonate with many kids and their caregivers."
--Kirkus Reviews

"It's frustrating being little in a world of high counters and cabinets where your parents and siblings tower over you and the cookies are always out of reach [...] [I Want to Be Big! offers] a good lesson in adaptability."
