From the Publishers-
Alice is tall. Not T-Rex or Empire State Building tall. Just four inches taller than the other eight-year-old girls at her school. Her mom says she’s tall. Her dad says she’s tall. But Alice is worried that being tall isn’t okay. She cries and cries and wishes that she was just like everyone else, until her dream takes her to the place where the tall girls live, and she sees, really sees herself for the first time.
My Aunt Betty has been an elementary school librarian for 24 years. This is not surprising because she loves kids and kids appreciate her enthusiasm. It is because of her that I enjoy a close relationship with my 7 cousins (later, 9). She always had all of us over for sleepovers and other outings. All 9 of us would cram into her Rabbit for trips around town. You never see that anymore
I asked around for words to describe Aunt Betty and these are the words that came back the most…Happy, Caring, and Thoughtful. As for me, my top three choices are Fun, Kind, and Full of Life.
