I'm the Small One is the story of Sophie, a second-grader who feels frustrated because she is so small. After hating her size and failing in her attempts to grow faster, she finally learns that being small has its good points. Colorful illustrations and a funny storyline will help students learn this powerful lesson of self-acceptance--and even self-love. Students will also be able to identify the narrative point of view and retell to better understand the story. The book and lesson are also available for levels M and P.
