Praise for It's a Little Book

“The pint-size companion to the best-selling ‘It’s a Book!,’ the board book version doesn’t merely shrink the proportions of the original; it also wisely contracts the whole wired world of its older brother into the smaller scope of a toddler’s landscape — in a good way.” —New York Times "ArtsBeat" blog

It's a Little Book allows you to introduce an even younger generation to the brilliance of Lane Smith in a great board book package…Put down the Tablet, the revolution is over-rated–long live the printed book!” —BSCKids.com

It's a Little Book is a Mommy Bookworm's dream…” —Jen Robinson's Book Page
