I initially picked this book because I related with the title. Just like the main character of the book, Mimi, I too, am small. Many of the frustrations Mimi has in life are ones that I share, like being shorter than all my friends, getting easily lost in crowds, and not being able to reach things on most shelves. I'm sure that many children also share these problems as well, which is why this book is so important for small kids like Mimi. The book is relatable since it talks about the downsides to being small, but it also talks about the many positives of being small. Things like being able to dart through crowds, being able to fit into small spaces to play or read, and being able to swim in the bathtub like it's a swimming pool (something that I did frequently in my childhood). Near the end of the book, Mimi's dad tells her there's a surprise waiting at home, and he takes her to his and Mimi's mom's bedroom. Inside is Mimi's mom, holding a newborn baby. Mimi is surprised at how small the baby is, and her mom tells her that the baby is her new little brother, Max. She tells Mimi how all babies start out small, and how Mimi was once just as tiny as Max, but now Mimi is a big sister. Mimi is proud of this, and leans over to whisper to Max that soon he'll be big just like her. I wasn't expecting this while reading, but it was definitely heart-warming and adorable. I loved this story, and I think that if I had read it as a child I would have been much more confident in myself (despite not being an older sibling) and my height. The illustrations are also adorable, and add a lot to the story in being able to show just how tiny Mimi is compared to everything else.… (mais)

A very sweet and adorable story about Mimi, a small girl who worries about all the things she can not do because of her small size. She eventually realizes that there are things that she can do only because she is small, so it isn't all bad. This is a beautifully-illustrated story about a child that realizes that there is good and bad in being small. This book would be good for kindergarten age children, especially when they start school and see all the "big" kids doing things they can not do. It would also be a good addition to a family library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.… (mais)

Sweet story of little Mimi who is the smallest in her family. She has difficulties being small and children will identify with her troubles. In the end, she is introduced to her baby brother Max who of course is smaller than her! Lovely watercolor illustrations are perfect to bring out Mimi’s personality. I would purchase this book for my grandchildren.
