An adorable cautionary tale from Caldecott Honoree Vera Brosgol
We are the Little Guys.
Yes, we are small. But there are a lot of us.
Together we are strong, and we can get all we need.
The Little Guys might be small, but they aim to be mighty.
As they head off to find breakfast, they can conquer anything through teamwork--cross deep waters, dig through obstacles, and climb the tallest trees. Nothing can stop them!
But as they begin to amass more than they need, the creatures in the forest ponder--what happens when no one can stop the Little Guys?
This slyly funny and rambunctious read-aloud explores how strength in numbers only works when the whole community unites together.
