"A gracefully appropriate addition to the duo's superb collection." --Kirkus

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 large, boisterous family celebrates the power of language and discovers that words--big or little--are the bridge that connects us all.

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.
