Itty Bitty

Bell, Cece. 2009. Itty Bitty. Candlewick Press.

Do you like itty bitty things? How about itty bitty animals? If you do, then you'll appreciate Cece Bell's Itty Bitty, a picture book about a tiny dog named Itty Bitty.

"Itty Bitty is a dog. A very, very tiny dog. One day, Itty Bitty found a bone. A very, very enormous bone. This bone is big enough to be my home, thought Itty Bitty."
The book is a simple one. Nothing grand. Just a simple story of a dog who's trying to make his house a home. What does his home need? Itty bitty, teeny-tiny furniture of course! Readers will journey with Itty Bitty as he goes shopping and decorates his home. It's a bit silly, but I think that a nice dose of silly is always a good thing.
