When Mouse heads off to a family reunion, Little Elliot decides go for a walk. As he explores each busy street, he sees families in all shapes and sizes. In a city of millions, Little Elliot feels very much alone-until he finds he has a family of his own!
I am so in love with Little Elliot! His good friend Mouse has gone to his family reunion and Little Elliot begins to feel lonely as he travels the streets of the "big city" alone and notices different families. He then learns that family does not need to include relatives, families just made up of people who love each other.
It is a sweet, simple story with few words and big, beautiful illustrations. Each page is filled with color and the scenes of New York are very realistic.
Little ones ages 2-7 will LOVE Little Elliot, Big Family.
