The Little Little Girl

The Little Little Girl with the Big Big Voice By Kristen Balouch
Grades PreK-1

This book is short in text, but has high impact. I love to read it to my kindergarten classes when introducing the concept of inferring. The vibrant illustrations show the little girl with her mouth open wide scaring animals away but it never comes right out and says why. The children can tell it's her loud screaming voice and we discuss how they know (title, illustrations, etc.) Then she meets a roaring loud lion which is her comeuppance.

Discussion seed: Use this book to teach inferring techniques with young students. Also great for text to self connections meeting loud people, being scared by loud people, making new friends, etc.
