Big, Bigger, Biggest!
Brightly colored animals in acrylic illustrate this amusing book about comparisons, antonyms, synonyms, and adjectives. A smiling hippo with squinting eyes declares, “I’m big. I’m large. I’m huge. I’m jumbo,” while a leaping orca’s bigger size is proclaimed as gigantic, immense, and enormous. The biggest, of course, is a dinosaur whose mammoth, humongous, colossal size is inferred by how much of its body won’t fit on the page. Size, speed, viscosity, hunger, and tiredness are the categories explored in this creative and engaging concept book, perfect for language instruction or parents seeking variation on pleas of “I’m hungry!” ©2009 Cooperative Children's Book Center
