Itty Bitty (Picture Book)



Released June 2009

Reviewed by Bob Walch

His name says it all. Itty Bitty is a very, very, very small dog. One day the tiny pooch discovers an exceedingly large bone. "This bone is big enough to be my home," thinks Itty Bitty to himself.

The resourceful dog gets to work and begins chewing until he has hallowed out the enormous bone and added a door and windows. But, unfortunately, the hallowed out bone doesn't seem like home. It lacks furnishings.

Itty Bitty heads to the nearest department store to find some items to make his new house more comfortable, but everything he sees is far TOO BIG. Then he notices a sign that says "Teeny-Weeny Stuff Sold Here!" Perfect! He purchases an itty-bitty table and rug plus also an itty-bitty sofa and chairs.

This humorous story about a teeny-tiny dog with a very big heart will appeal to children who can certainly sympathize with Itty Bitty's dilemma of living in a world where there's lots of big stuff. Don't forget to connect the story with the small furniture your child may have in his room or find at pre-school.
