Bobo the chimp finds that his jungle friends are happy to help him feel tall -- but that small is still the perfect size for being safe in Mommy's arms.

When you're a tiny chimp like Bobo, it seems that everyone else is bigger than you. Luckily, all his pals, from the lion cub to the elephant to the towering giraffe, let Bobo climb on their shoulders or even their heads to give him a taste of being tall. But what if the eager little guy clambers too high? With endearingly expressive illustrations, Jez Alborough turns a moment of high anxiety into a Mommy-and-Bobo reunion in another irresistible tale of very few words-and very big heart.

A very sweet book about relative sizes and accepting the size you are. Simple three word text and lots of repetition makkes this a hit with little kids.
