What an adorable book! The writing is beautiful, and has lovely pictures. My 2 year old loves it and can relate to how a little girl experienced the world as a little baby. I will be reading more from this author.

Mrs. Fong's afternoon class read "When Stella was Very, Very Small". Stella thought her backyard was a jungle. She thought that her neighbour's cat was a ferocious, man-eating tiger. Most of us liked this story very much.
