Small in the City

PETALUMA--

 

It can be a little scary to be small in a big city, but this child has some good advice for a very special friend in need.

 

It can be a little scary to be small in a big city, but it helps to know you're not alone.

 

When you're small in the city, people don't see you, and loud sounds can scare you, and knowing what to do is sometimes hard. But this little kid knows what it's like, and knows the neighborhood. And a little friendly advice can go a long way.

 

Alleys can be good shortcuts, but some are too dark.

 

Or, there are lots of good hiding places in the city, like under a mulberry bush or up a walnut tree.

 

And, if the city gets to be too much, you're always welcome home, where it's safe and quiet.

 

In the first book that he has both written and illustrated, award-winning artist Sydney Smith spins a quiet, contemplative tale about seeing a big world through little eyes.
