"There are many different types of talent that go into any stage production, and this "bouncy, early-childhood answer to Glee" (Kirkus Reviews) showcases a whole host of them with style and verve. In fact, Think Big is much more of an exploration of what goes on behind the scenes and leading up to a performance than about the show itself.

For another exuberant celebration of creativity, check out Judy Sierra's boisterous Zoozical." Picture Books December 2012 Newsletter
