Praise

“Bogart presents a way for young children to explore the concepts of big and small in a way few picture books address …. Both text and illustrations have a modest sense of the sublime in their subject, one that comes across clearly. A necessary purchase that surpasses the ordinary fare.” - Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews


“Youngsters will delight in the awe-inspiring illustrations of the universe …. Word choice is highly suitable for the earliest independent readers. This book will serve as a springboard for discussing the way children perceive size in the natural world.” - School Library Journal


Big and Small, Room for All is the first children’s book Toronto’s Gillian Newland has illustrated. Let’s all hope she decides to stick around …. Jo Ellen Bogart[‘s] simple rhymes take the reader on a journey from the deep expanse of the universe to the tiny organisms revealed under a microscope …. Stunning.” - Starred Review, Quill & Quire


“Gillian Newland’s rich watercolour illustrations are the star of this concept book …. Bogart has decided on an interesting structure, mentioning comparisons of scale in diminishing order. Thus we begin with the vastness of the universe and end with ‘a world of things too small to see.” - CM Magazine
