As Big as You by Elaine Greenstein



Elaine Greenstein’s springtime palette celebrates the growing of a child in a setting abundant with nature. And parents don’t have to stop at the last line!.

Elaine Greenstein’s springtime palette celebrates the growing of a child in a setting abundant with nature. As big as you by Elaine Greenstein is tender book that depicts the growth of a newborn baby. Told from a mother's perspective the child's growth is compared to the growth of seasonal fruits, vegtables, animals and plants. Although I found some of the comparisons a stretch ("- your cheeks as plump as pinecones", "your tummy was as roly-poly as a squash"), the overall content of the book was charming. The illustrations were soft, friendly and inviting. Young toddlers will definitely find pleasure in having this book read to them over and over again.

When you were born, you were as big as a cabbage. as quiet as a mouse, it opens, and then you grew large as a pumpkin and bouncy as a bunny. Readers see the babe in the spring, with a mouth dainty as a strawberry and in the summer high as the tomato plant. In the fall, when the child’s hand is wide as an oak leaf, her mother makes an appearance at last, swinging the child in her arms and assuring that someday soon, you’ll be as big as me! The text usually faces a full-page image, done in decorative rhythms and shapes. A double-paged spread supports each animal image

In autumn, he’s as large as a pumpkin; in winter, he’s as full as a holly bush, and in spring, he’s as long as the lettuce patch. And someday, one day, he’ll be as big as mama.
