The Little Little Girl with the Big Big Voice by Kristen Balouch
Rating: 4 very vibrant stars
When I wasn't blogging, there were a few books that made me miss it more than others. This was one of them. We checked it out a few months ago, grabbing it from the New Book Section in our library. The illustrations grabbed me, so I had to grab it. I couldn't resist!
The story: The big-voiced little girl needs someone to play with; she comes upon animal after animal and is excited to play with them, but her big voice scares them away. Finally she meets a lion, who roars a big giant roar after she uses her big giant voice. They look at each other, blink, and then laugh, knowing they've found a new friend in each other.

The pictures are ah-maaaaaa-zing. Vibrant. Bright. Happy. Big. I'm not sure I have enough words to describe how much I love Balouch's illustrations. Her story was good, her pictures were great. More, please!
