“I know what it’s like to be small in the city.”
The illustrations are absolutely breath-taking. In Small in the City, readers are walked through crowded streets, big buses, and crowded sidewalks by a small child who knows exactly how hard it is to feel small. “People don’t see you and loud sounds can scare you” – Whether your family is going through a physical move or processing new and scary emotions, this is the story for you! Sydney Smith’s narrator acknowledges and affirms the fears that find us in new places while also offering some advice, friend to friend.
Questions to ask your kiddos:
Can you think of a time when you felt scared in a new place? What made you feel better? Did someone help you find your way around?
