Praise for Simply Small

A newly hatched sea turtle, a baby giraffe anxious for independence and a little elephant who wants more than anything to help his mother … each of the characters struggles with issues that young children can relate to.
Review, Canadian Children’s Book News

Opal uses vibrant onomatopoeic language which makes reading aloud to children fun.
ABC Best Books for Children

The images are perfect for newborns, with enough colour contrasting to capture their attention…. For those looking to be original, the set of these board books tied together with pretty ribbon would make a darling baby shower gift! Luckily they aren’t just pretty but fun, from birth for until preschool, a must have for the modern parent.
