"Me Tall, You Small is a series of playful vignettes in the daily life of a pair of weasels, parent and child. Whether they are having a bubble bath, kicking a soccer ball, or eating ice cream together, simple paired phrases showcase their loving — and amusingly realistic — relationship. After a fall: You boo-boo. Me bandage. At bedtime: Me tired. You wired. Creative use of language with wordplay, onomatopoeia, and rhyme infuses this book with humor and surprise. Together with the text, expressive line-drawn artwork drives home the funny differences between life as a parent and a child. This silly, touching read-aloud will have both parties celebrating their role, whether tall or small." -- Provided by publisher.

Such an adorable book! And parents will love the rhymes! (As the comment below quotes "you wired/ me tired"!)

This book works on two levels. For young children it's a great vocabulary builder with striking illustrations. Adults will also catch moments of wry humour as the parent creature declares "me tired, you wired; me smart, you smarter."
