    1. This is a story with nice, detailed illustrations, of a father flying a kite and his little boy begging for a turn. Dad thinks Sam is too little and everyone has a try at catching the runaway kite, e.g. the postman and his sack of mail, a bank robber escaped from jail and animals at the zoo, all with great rhyming text and a good paced rhythm. My children love it that all the adults struggle and in the end it is actually the little boy who is just right. This is one of my children's favourite bo [...]

    2. Sam wants to fly his kite but his Dad tells him that he's not big enough. Disaster ensues as a strong wind takes the kite, and Sam's Dad, on a whirl-wind adventure through the town. Everyone the kite passes tries to pull it down, but in-fact the solution to the problem WAS NOT someone bigger, but someone just Sam's size. Someone Bigger sports bouncy text in a combination of rhyme and prose. The cheerful artwork make it visually appealing to even the smallest readers. This whimsical story is just [...]

    3. This would make a great extension for preschool and up about a boy and his dad flying a kite. The father won't let the boy fly it because he is to small but everyone else is getting pulled away by the kite. Will the boy ever get his chance?

    5. This book is very special to me and my daughter. We read it many many times when she was younger and she then read it to me when she learnt to read. We love a good rhyme and the illustrations are wonderful! We saved it, stored away for 10 years at least, until 3 months ago her baby brother was born and we got the same copy out and are all enjoying it all over again! Couldn't recommend it more for young children.

    6. A kid saves the day by grabbing the string of a kite when his father, townspeople, and animals are all pullled up in the air with the kite.The kids in story time really liked this one. They were engaged and I saw lots of smiles.

    7. I love this book; the illustrations and use of rhyme make it a wonderful bedtime story. Effectively gets across the message that size isn't important, which is always useful with little children who always ' want to be bigger'.

    8. A little boy desperately wants to fly a kite he and his father made together, but is consistently told (by all the people swooped off the ground by the kite - including some very large zoo animals) this kite needs someone bigger!Great illustrations.

    9. It's very goodbut it kind of reminds me of Stuck and it's just not quite as engaging for me. I think it's a bit too traditional for my taste since I prefer more subversive and edgy children's books.

    10. Sweet story, but the rhyme gets a little too wordy at times. I started abbreviating the text for Owen just to get the story for him. A fun one-timer to read to your kids. Get it at the library.

    11. December 2016 - this is a storytime favorite of mine, and Ben really liked it, especially since he's into the idea of getting bigger. One of those rhyming stories that's bouncy and fun to read aloud.

    12. Easily my favorite children's book written this decade. I first encountered this whimsical tale of kite flying at a library story time. Afterward I immediately went to find a copy for my home.

    13. My girls love this book. Not only does the kid learn that he can do great things at any size, but he also saves the firemen!
