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

Being Small (Isn’t So Bad After All) is definitely an adorable feel good read for all children regardless of how small. It’s even great for those short adults, like myself… ha! More than that it teaches the important of not being afraid of who you are and all you have to offer.
I am only 5’1″ as an adult and always grew up on the small side, so I related to this book so much. When I was young, I didn’t love being small, but as I got older I realized all the amazing things that came with being short and small. I adore how this book emphasizes that and how to be happy with who you are.
My one year-old son is on the smaller side (only 14th percentile!) and I cannot wait to show him this book some day and all the amazing benefits that can come from being small. The author took a “small concept” and made it into something large. Plus, there’s adorable illustrations and great rhyming words too! Definitely work a pick up.
