Now I'm Big

Margaret Miller, Author, Margaret Miller, Illustrator Greenwillow Books $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-688-14077-9
Allowing for a minor adjustment in scale, even five-year-olds can look back on their youth, and often do. Miller (Guess Who?; Can You Guess?) explores this beguiling childhood practice in her latest photo-illustrated volume: a racially-balanced group of six youngsters offers examples of how they have changed, from the time they were ""little."" A boy remarks, ""When I was a baby, I had a favorite stuffed animal. Now I'm big! I take care of a real dog."" A girl reflects, ""When I was little I wore diapers and my parents dressed me. Now I'm big! I wear underwear, and I dress myself."" Proud, beaming faces light up well-staged, full-color photographs. The same group photo, with a different child emphasized (the rest of the picture is deliberately faded), serves as opener for each child's reminiscence, now documented for posterity. True voices of Generation ABC. Ages 3-up. (Mar.)
