About the Book:

This week’s picture book is in English and Italian, but it has been translated into more than 200 languages since its publication in 2013. It is a story that will resonate with kids from 0 to 100. The story follows Tamia, the main character, as she questions her size compared to other creatures, and ultimately, the world and space. In the end, the answer to Tamia’s question, Io sono piccola? or Am I small?, is perfect.

Writing Prompt for Kids:
