Denise Fleming’s book gives young readers a frog’s-eye view of life in a pond throughout the seasons.In the Small, Small Pond is a 1994 Caldecott Honor Book.
I am quickly becoming a Denise Fleming fan. Just like in Pumpkin Eye, In the Small Small Pond is more of an expression of experience and feeling rather than a play by play story.
Fleming has a unique style to both her writing and her illustrations. The use of simple, rhyming prose in her books is effective and engaging. This is a fantastic book to read aloud to toddlers and small children. The illustrations are bright and stylized, creating a unique texture to the story.
