    The original premise of Phillip Winterberg's Bin ich klein? (Am I Small?) is simplicity itself, is basically and sweetly straightforwardly that size is always and forever relative and that depending on the body types and proportions of those around us, we are perceived as being at times small and at times large (and thus, we are everything, and therefore just right). Accompanied by Nadja Wichmann's bright and expressive illustrations (and although perhaps a bit too exaggerated for my own persona The original premise of Phillip Winterberg's Bin ich klein? (Am I Small?) is simplicity itself, is basically and sweetly straightforwardly that size is always and forever relative and that depending on the body types and proportions of those around us, we are perceived as being at times small and at times large (and thus, we are everything, and therefore just right). Accompanied by Nadja Wichmann's bright and expressive illustrations (and although perhaps a bit too exaggerated for my own personal tastes, a perfect and evocative mirror of the text, especially the many variants of smallness and largeness), Bin ich klein? is a fun introduction to sizes and relativity of comparisons for young children, whilst also presenting the important message that we should love ourselves, that our shapes and our body sizes are without fault and flawless, that we are therefore perfect just the way they are. That being said, the entire Bin ich klein? series is actually oh so much more than the above. For Phillip Winterberg's original text has in fact and indeed been rendered into numerous dual-language editions (from French to Chinese, and even extinct languages like Latin and Gothic) and thus, beyond its obvious appeal to and for children, these parallel text versions are a wonderful and above all also fun and engagingly useful language teaching and learning tool for ANYONE (both children and adults, although some adults might I guess chafe at using a simple picture book for language learning or teaching). After recently downloading the German/Gothic version of Bin ich klein on my Kindle, it was truly so much fun and massively, enlighteningly entertaining to figure out, to compare and contrast the Gothic with the accompanying standard German text (and to realise just how close much of the long extinct Gothic is not only to modern German, but also to English and Dutch). Highly recommended for language enthusiasts (I have downloaded at least twenty different, variable dual-language versions of Bin ich klein? to date and am having a diverting, informative and above all massively fun time figuring out meanings and even basic grammar points by simply comparing and contrasting the parallel texts).

    Fun little book. Great for people learning a new language. I was reading the Korean/English version. It took me forever to get through considering this barely has any words in it. But it was so much fun reading something besides my textbooks, in Korean. I am going to get more of the authors books for Korean and maybe keep on re-reading them until I get better.

    Das Bucher ist sehr gut. I got this book to boost my ego. It worked. I understood the whole thing. This is the first book I have ever read in German. German was my first language. After adoption at age 5, I was forbidden to speak my language. I took two semesters, about 15 years ago. But didn't have anyone to talk to. Now at 61, I find a great app Duolingo, and I have read a kids book. I will also read it to my grandson.

    The drawings are so freaking cute and it's a great starter book if you're new to the language as there's English and Korean on every page.

    Although this book is written for children, I definitely think these simple translation books are helpful when learning a second language. So, nonetheless, I enjoyed flipping through it. I love the Swedish language and I try to learn new words everyday! The graphics are also super adorable and this would be a great book to raise a bilingual child with. Hope I can find more simple and creative books like this too.

    My husband and I met in German Club while at university. We both speak German, although one of us speaks it better than the other, and we toyed with the idea of raising Bug bilingual. That's how we became the proud owners of Bin ich klein? Now, we speak mainly English in the house but we do have the odd phrases that we use day to day and quite a few books that we read in German. I realize most people reading this may not speak German and that's ok. Bin ich klein? is still an amazing read that yo My husband and I met in German Club while at university. We both speak German, although one of us speaks it better than the other, and we toyed with the idea of raising Bug bilingual. That's how we became the proud owners of Bin ich klein? Now, we speak mainly English in the house but we do have the odd phrases that we use day to day and quite a few books that we read in German. I realize most people reading this may not speak German and that's ok. Bin ich klein? is still an amazing read that you should consider sharing with your child. Why you may ask? Well because it comes in over 100 languages. That's right. You can get it in English (translation: Am I Small?) or even a bilingual version. The message that it delivers is clear and sweet and the pictures are vibrant and whimsical. It would be a treasure in any library. Bug loves Bin ich klein? He calls it “Mini” after one of the lines in the book (“Bin ich mini?”). He's content to sit on the floor and look at the pictures himself or will drag it over to me to read for the umpteenth time. Thanks to the repetitive lines I almost know it by heart and Bug can fill in quite a few himself. I think that it's not only the illustrations he likes but the message as well. It's interesting for me to think that Bug can relate so clearly to this story. The main character, Tamia, is introduced by the narrator at the beginning of the book and described as small. This comes as a shock to her and initiates an inquiry among her friends. Each one gives her a different response. Tamia seems confused until the end, when she realizes that she's all of these things and being all of these things makes her just right, the way she is. It's a sweet moment. The journey that she embarks on, not only takes the reader through the story, but leads them through the jungle of color that Bin ich klein? is submersed in. Each page jumps out and captivates you with its vibrancy, detail, and imagination. There are flying zeppelins with bubble blowing red furry creatures. There are giant pink whales with rainbow harvesting birds on their backs. The intricacies aren't overwhelming and Bug spends a great deal of time pouring over each page. We read this book so often the spine is falling apart and I still discover little tid bits each time we open the cover. Story Tips: 1. There are so many details and fun illustrations. You can read it through normally or just even discuss the pictures. 2. I'm not sure what these pages are made of but they are pretty durable. You won't need to be as careful with your little one turning the page.

    So it seems there are versions of this book in multiple languages. Thank you, Goodreads reviewers! I read Am I Small? in an English-Japanese edition. Each sentence is written in romanji, hiragana/katakana, and English. In this way, the book can be read entirely in Japanese, entirely in English, or with both languages like an echo. The story builds upon a little girl's inquiry as to whether or not she is small. Depending on who she asks, she gets an answer of being even bigger or even smaller.

The story builds upon a little girl's inquiry as to whether or not she is small. Depending on who she asks, she gets an answer of being even bigger or even smaller. The vocabulary presents readers with a variety of words and expressions to convey and compare sizes (ex: small, tiny, microscopic, etc.). While the story doesn't have comparative sentences ("you are bigger than..." or "..... is the biggest of all!"), the images provide opportunities for adults to prompt children with these comparisons. The array of size vocabulary presented in both languages make this a fairly successful book, in my opinion. I wish it wasn't just in ebook format (though it only cost $0.99 on Kindle). I'll have to research print options since I'm not a fan of book time as screen time for super young kids.

    Tiny book with the single purpose of teaching you various German words for bigness and smallness - and being extraordinarily cute while doing so. I read the German-Tamil bilingual version of it. Apart from the beautifully done illustrations, what I found impressive was how well the Tamil translations had been done - casual, informal language that suits a child, while also being perfectly grammatical and understandable. Looking forward to checking out other books in the series.

    I read the Latin/English version on a lark last night with the children, and found it enjoyable and educational. Upon completion of the book, I learned that there are multiple versions of this same book in different languages. This only increased my joy over the book, as it also did my daughter's. She requested German--perhaps tonight!

    Read in Kindle Unlimited, but will probably get it as paperback or hardcover if available. The cover shows only very little of the amazing art inside. It's not only illustrations. The double pages could stand as paintings on their own. The story is very simple. The little girl compares herself to larger things and smaller things, proving that she is not just one denomination. Also it's bilingual which is great. I love that the text is part of the illustrations too.

    This is such a cute, very short book which I think is great for not only children learning French, but for any beginning learners of the language. I don't have a child so I read the book for my own interest via Kindle, and I liked it and it's actually at my current French reading level (don't judge, I'm an absolute beginner!). It's literally only a few pages long so it really isn't much, but I'd love to read this to my child someday, if I ever have one.

    Cute story including some repetitive use of questions/statements and descriptive big/small vocabulary in both Serbian (Latin alphabet) and English. I have found it very difficult to find English-Serbian bilingual books for our kids. I really appreciated this translation, and my kids enjoyed the story.

    I read the Dutch English version. It's a very simple book, only a couple of words per page and plenty of repetition. Perfect for someone starting a language but probably more appropriate for a bilingual child rather than an adult

    Poor translation Very culturally biased. One story doesn't suit all cultures just because you change the words on the page. Someone as educated as the author should know better. Clearly, this book was the author's lazy attempt to achieve what probably started out as a noble goal he set out for himself. I'm all for childhood literacy initiatives, but not like this.

I could dissect and psychoanalyze the author's eurocentric narcissism for hours but it just gets so tiring after a while. This book is not worth the paper it's printed on.

    A charming book echoing the lost "Not too Small" (Dorothy King) of my childhood, in which Tamia finds out that she is not too small nor too big but that she is Tamia-sized, and that's fine. The drawings are funny-weird and I don't think they would give even the more sensitive children an issue. The other point with this story is that it has been translated into dozens of languages.

    I purchased this book because it is a bilingual book in Fulani and English. A parent and I read the book together. The parent mentioned that the Fulani words used in the book are not words that she uses when she speaks Fulani, so she ended up just translating into her dialect. The book was GREAT for English, because it uses many descriptive words. However, I wish the translation would have fit this particular parent and her language better, so that we could have engaged the student more deeply.

    This is a charming book really for children with colorful art full of little tiny details you can expand. I found it much more a children's book for play than a language book. I had the Hebrew version on my wish list and for some reason it was free today! That said I don't have kids so someone with a child the appropriate age should let me know if kids do actually enjoy it and spend a lot of time with it.

    Am I small? Ǹjẹ́ mo kéré?: Children's Picture Book English-Yoruba (Bilingual Edition) (World Children's Book 47) Love how the front of the book tells you how to zoom in etc while viewing this picture book. Shows differences of how the child is small compared to other things. Colorful children's book. This version shows you the words in Yoruba and in English Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.

    Ceart go leor - Okay The illustrations are fun and the book presents perspective and relative size well. The Irish is okay, though I'd like to see the questions in normal question word order (An bhfuil mé beag?) instead of only intonation questions (Tá mé beag?). And "microscopic", which occurs several times, should be in the singular form (micreascópach).

    Unfortunately, this book although it is both in English and French is probably a bit beyond my level of reading in French. Six years of French at school = random words and sentences that don't really help very much when you want to continue learning French. I can't even read a book for toddlers with this knowledge. The British Education system really need to understand that this isn't right! So yeah, review score is low because: 1.

    i miss reading children’s books, truly. considering i’m still a beginner in korean, it’s essential to start small and read korean children’s books. i loved the colorful pages and i actually knew a few words here and there, but most importantly, what you gain from reading is knowledge. in the end, i learned a few new adjectives in korean! such a cute book!
