About the Book

As a baby gorilla sits reading quietly, a baby donkey pesters him about the source of his absorption.

Editorial Reviews

“The pint-size companion to the best-selling ‘It’s a Book!,’ the board book version doesn’t merely shrink the proportions of the original; it also wisely contracts the whole wired world of its older brother into the smaller scope of a toddler’s landscape — in a good way.” -New York Times "ArtsBeat" blog

“It’s a Little Book allows you to introduce an even younger generation to the brilliance of Lane Smith in a great board book package…Put down the Tablet, the revolution is over-rated–long live the printed book!” -BSCKids.com
 
“It''s a Little Book is a Mommy Bookworm''s dream…" -Jen Robinson''s Book Page
