The New Small Person (Book Review)

The New Small Person by Lauren Child

Ages: 4-8

Grades PreK-3

What a fun book! Little Elmore is happy being an only child. He is well loved and his very own room. Then a new small person comes along that knocks things over and changes everything! Worst of all, this new small person seems to be liked more than Elmore.

We loved taking the journey with Elmore as he discovers that having a new small person hanging around just might not be as bad as he thought.

Lauren Child does a wonderful job of sharing the good and the bad of sharing life with a sibling.

Thanks to our friends at Candlewick Press for sharing this fun children's book with us.
