"When I was Little, I could hardly do anything. But now I can do lots of things, like braid my own hair, paint my toenails bubble-gum pink, and go to nursery school. I'm not a baby anymore. I'm me!"
In her first book for children, Jaime Lee Curtis captures a little girl's simple, childlike celebration of herself, as she looks back on her childhood from the lofty height of four and a half years. Together with Laura Cornell's exuberant art, When I was Little: A Four-Year-Old's Memoir of Her Youth is a spirited view of growing up.
