Today, I’m excited to share the follow up to one of my favorite books with you all! The Girl With Big, Big Questions by Britney Winn Lee is a title I’ve been looking forward to for months, and I’m happy to report it did NOT disappoint. In fact, I may just love it more than The Boy With Big, Big Feelings.
Title: The Girl With Big, Big Questions
Author: Britney Winn Lee
Illustrator: Jacob Souva
Publisher: Beaming Books
Published: August 10, 2021
Format: Picture Book
Following a young girl and her search for answers to questions big and small, The Girl With Big, Big Questions celebrates the spirit of curiosity and highlights the importance of asking questions. By following the persistent young girl as she asks questions like, “What makes a good person?” and, “What happens to stars when they fall?”, young readers will see examples of thinking outside the box and experience the joy of learning through questioning. When the young girl finds a bird’s nest built low to the ground on a fence, she can’t help but ask herself, “What is a bird’s nest doing down here?”, leading her to find a problem in her community and to lead the charge to solve it.
The illustrations by Jacob Souva are lovely, and fans of The Boy with Big, Big Feelings will be happy to see his familiar style on every page. I especially love the way Jacob captures concepts like questions and feelings in a colorful way, giving children a look into the thoughts and feelings of the characters in the series.
