From the Publisher:

I know some Big Words.
I'll teach them to you.
Although you are small,
you can use Big Words too.

Big Words aren't scary.
They're big fun to learn.
I was taught once
and now it's your turn.

The eighth hilarious picture book by the #1 New York Times bestselling team of Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell helps little people communicate in a big person's world. With grown-up words like cooperate, respect, patience and considerate, a big, boisterous and zany family celebrates the power of language and discovers that words—big or little—are the bridge that connects us all.

Annotation:
The awesome picture book duo of Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell tackles a smattering of impressively big words in their eighth playful picture book with a purpose. Words such as inconsiderate, disgusting, and understanding are declared, used properly, and humorously illustrated. A gang of multicultural children are features throughout in Cornell's playful illustrations. Other books by the pair include TODAY I FEEL SILLY and IT'S HARD TO BE FIVE.

Praise

"Clear, example-filled definitions balanced with Cornell's energetic drawings of active multiethnic children in familiar, everyday scenarios will have little ones developing their vocabulary with multisyllabic words like persevere and stupendous as they absorb the traditional golden rule of treating everyone with respect. Curtis concludes her theme with the one word all children understand, love, a little word with a huge significance. A gracefully appropriate addition to the duo's superb collection." 8/1/2008

"Curtis once again demonstrates her trademark sensibility for childhood's simultaneously awkward and silly moments while focusing on the positive values learned from these experiences." 10/1/08
