Who Is Taller?

Yona Tepper
AGE: 3-6

Hadas and Eyal are playing in the back yard. Hadas bounces on the trampoline while Eyal is on the swing, and each one claims s/he is the tallest. So it becomes a competition. First they climb high things around them, then they move into the world of fantasy. They imagine themselves climbing a giant, a giraffe, an elephant, even flying in a plane and a spaceship - all to be the "tallest in the world!"
The children come back down to earth when Mom brings them a box with a surprise in it - a little, gray kitten. Take good care of it, she says, and don't forget that to the kitten, you are absolute giants.
In this delightful book, the children learn to replace competition with cooperation so that they can take care of the tiny kitten. The illustrations portray both reality and fantasy together - in a very special way!
