This is a wonderful book by Michael Garland featuring a mouse and elephant and all the ways they are different yet still good friends. The central concept of opposites is wonderfully illustrated and amount of rhyming is fun to read aloud. My toddler asked me to read it three times in a row the first time we read it, so I call it a win.

He studied the pictures intently, which are detailed but not overly busy and listened closely taking in the concept of demonstrated by Big and Little. Best line to illustrate the positive story line: “They may be different / But don’t think it strange / They are who they are / No need for a change.” I hope to read more of Big and Little Adventures and will check out the author’s other books.
