Being small is the worst! No one ever picks me for their sports team and my feet hurt from standing on my tiptoes all the time. There can't be anything good about being small...right? Being Small is a picture book about a little girl who is scared to go to school because she's the shortest kid in the class. She talks about all of the reasons that being short is a challenge, but her mother presents to her funny and unique advantages that only she has because of her height, instilling self-confidence in her. This book is a must-read for any child who has ever fallen behind the curve on the growth chart.

"A wonderful, read-aloud picture book...highly recommended for personal and public library children's collections." --Midwest Book Review

"The story itself works well; the artwork is colorful, detailed, and draws the reader in. Kids of this early age group will love it. Being Small (Isn't So Bad After All) by Lori Orlinsky is highly recommended." --Readers Favorite

"With lovely illustrations that help to tell the little rhyming story well, this is a great book for children who would like to know that their height is never an issue in life; they re beautiful just the way they are! Highly recommended for kids everywhere!" --Jed Doherty, Host/Executive Producer, Reading With Your Kids Podcast

MY REVIEW
Being Small is a cute children's book that showcases a little girl who is adamant about staying home being she's too short to have any fun. Or so she believes. She lists all the reasons why being short is the worst, but then her mom counters with reasons why being short is just fine. Eventually, the little girl realizes her mom is right, and she's finally okay with being small.
I found this story to be a quick, easy read. Little kids will find the rhyming scheme fun to follow along with. The illustrations are cute, and I'm sure young readers will possibly relate to being unhappy with being on the smaller side.
I, myself, have never been short (even as a kid, I was a tall, lanky noodle), but my twin sister has been short all her life (she's 5 foot exactly, and I'm almost 5'8"), so while I can't relate personally, I understand the struggle. 
Being Small is a book I'd recommend to parents of young readers. It's cute and fun, and it appeals to all ages.
5 stars!
