    Chronicling the quiet heroism of one small mouse on an arduous journey to bring another mouse the smallest of gifts, Great Big Things serves as a reminder that it’s not our size but what we’re doing in this world that makes us small or big: it’s what makes a teeny mouse as big as a mountain, what makes his gesture after a long journey as big and as consequential as the moon.   

      

    Following her debut, Real Cowboys, Kate Hoefler's poetic story of perseverance and friendship is brought to life by Noah Klocek's breathtaking expansive landscapes that celebrate the natural beauty of the world and the bonds that connect us all.

    "Single lines of large-print text name the sights, moving the brave mouse to its destination with a breathless and greatly admiring and encouraging tone. But those big things seem small because it's all about the love and commitment that make the dangers and difficulties worthwhile.  A gentle, sweet read-aloud . . . " —Kirkus 

     

    "The message about devotion and perseverance, however, is a “great big thing” and will provide an effective basis for further discussion." — Booklist
