We received this book in our Book Start pack and we have read it every night for quite some time - She is 20 months old now.  I think the black and white illustrations are quite striking to her.  She loves pointing out the penguin when its teeny-tiny on a few of the pages.  She also loves making a 'weeeeeeeeeeee' sounds when the penguin is shown sliding down the mountain.  Very cute that she loves this book so much.

This book is really lovely. My daughter loves trying to find the little penguin on every page. It is a very short story so now my daughter knows every word. It teaches your child the difference between big and small which is great. Lovely illustration too.

This is a really sweet book, about a penguin that is small, but he is the biggest thing to his penguin mom. Its a lovely book to share with a baby or toddler. It is simple and bits of it repetitive, but such an effective, lovely book.

This is a lovely book with a beautiful message for little ones. Emma Dodds is a very talented illustrator and the book is just filled with beautiful drawings based around a little penguin...a very adorable penguin may I add. The short sentences used in the book are age appropriate. The repetition of "I am small" makes the message clear that no matter how large the world is and no matter how small you are, you are loved so so much and rather special. A delight.

All of the Emma Dodd books we've read together have been an exploration of the love between a parent and child. "Me" has to be our favourite though - looks at the world from the perspective of a tiny baby penguin - the other penguins are big and fast, the mountains are steep, and the cold ocean water deep..... quite a frightening place to be so small...... but as long as he's with his parent he knows he's safe and ok, because although the baby is small, he understands that he is the biggest thing in his parent's world. 

The illustrations are fun and quite clean in style... with added interest from the use of metallic highlights which are very eye-catching whatever the age of the child and work *particularly* well in "Me" because the silvery mirror effect is so suggestive of the icy world in which the penguins live. We'd not read this for a while, but its a nice one to revisit with our 3.75yr old as she begins to read / sound out words as its a nice simple text, lots of repetition, not too much on every page, with limited clues about the content from the picture.

A beautifully illustrated, truly heartwarming story which perfectly captures the world through a wee ones eyes. I've read it so many times I now know the text off by heart, but it remains one of my favourites! A must read for all parents and their little ones.
