"We are in love with this book! [...] As an artist, I love love LOVE the art in this book, I think its not only beautiful, but perfect for children. My son spent a lot of time just studying every colorful page. We read it twice in the first sitting because he was so happy! He's not yet 1, so getting him to sit still for story time is tough, and this book was such a hit he sat through it with nothing but a big smile and lots of pointing to the stuff he liked on the pages. I highly recommend this book :) Get it get it get it!""—Amazon Customer Review
"Written in a very simple way but with a profound message for both adults and kids."—Amazon Customer Review
"I LOVED it. Lots of repetition to help 'lil ones get used to structure and words! Many different words being used to help them improve their vocabulary (or pick the best word!). Most importantly, it sends a good message about how being unique and different is good. I STRONGLY suggest you check this book out!"—ESLCarissa.blogspot.com
"readers will emerge from this book feeling slightly more confident about themselves—whatever their size."—ForeWord Clarion Reviews

A World Children’s Book for Every Country on the Planet
From Afar to Zulu: The picture book Am I small? (ISBN: 149230977X)
has been translated into over 100 languages since its publication.
The story by author Philipp Winterberg is available for every country
in the world in at least one national language. It is the world's first
children's book covering the entire globe.
In Am I small? young and old readers alike accompany the girl Tamia
on a journey full of wonders. Together they discover that size is relative
and that Tamia is just right the way she is. "Enchanting" judges the trade
journal Eselsohr; "wonderful for bilingual families, and kindergartens,"
says the Börsenblatt and the American book review magazine Kirkus
Reviews kindly compliments "for children who enjoy lingering over
pages full of magical creatures and whimsical details [...] told in simple
and engaging words and imaginative pictures."
More than 200 translators have already participated in the World Children's
Book. Sometimes the research took months, "I had to look for a Tibetan
translator for almost a year," says Winterberg. The book is now also
available in hundreds of language combinations, such as Spanish-Tagalog
or German-Tigrinya — a language spoken in Ethiopia and Eritrea, whose
script is reminiscent of children's drawings.
In the years and decades to come the World Children's Book project will
continue to grow. The aim is to gradually translate Am I small? into
over 500 languages.
