Description

You'll Soon Grow, Alex is an English original, written by Andrea Shavick and illustrated by Russell Ayto in 2000.  This is the Chinese translated version. 

The Story

Alex is smaller than everyone he knows. He hates being so small! No matter how much he tried, for instance, he ate a lot (at the advice of his mother), exercised a lot (at the advice of his father), read a lot (at the advice of his teacher), nothing seems to work. In the end, he approached his tall Uncle Danny for help! .....Well, in the end, Alex realised that he is happier being who he is and it's the size of your heart, not the length of your legs that really matters. Want to know what Uncle Danny told him? Read the book to find out. 

This is a nice little story and the message of the book is sweet and simple.  Be happy with who you are. Sometimes, we wish we are taller, slimmer, prettier, smarter. Children may be self-conscious at some point in their growing up years. Teach your child through this book that it matters more what we are inside than how we look outside. A universal truth that is often forgotten. 

This book is available in soft cover, in simplified chinese with no hanyu pinyin.

For reading to a child, this book may suit children of 4 years and above. For self read, we would recommend this book for children above 7. 

Description in Chinese

读者群: 适合3-6岁孩子阅读,3-5岁建议和父母进行亲自阅读,6—8岁孩子可自主阅读。

1)这本书用一种有趣的方式呈现了小孩子对自我的认知以及自尊心的需要,也揭示了一个更深刻的理由——真正重要的是“你是谁”,而不是你看起来怎么样。作家和画家结合一起的不俗笔力,精准地捕捉了小阿力的苦恼和快乐。这本书对于成长中的小孩子,可以说是建立自信的必读书;当然,它更适用于那些经常站在镜子前面,希望自己会有些改变的人。

2)画家通过夸张的构图,让故事顺理成章有了夸大趣味的发展,令书中人物活跃起来;更能激发小读者的感受。

3)书的主题“长高”,是小孩子必经的成长过程,关乎他们的心理活动和感受,也体现着爸爸妈妈的关爱和寄托。

内容简介

阿力一点都不喜欢自己的小个子,他最大的心愿就是希望长高,最好长得像大树一样高,像长颈鹿一样高,或者像巨人一样高,总之越高越好。爸爸、妈妈、姐姐,还有老师提供了不同的方法,可是都没有用,阿力一点儿也没长高。后来听取了叔叔的建议,变成了最快乐的男孩……

    画者罗素?艾图藉由夸张的构图,强调其它人的高大来对比阿力的矮小,让故事顺理成章有了夸大趣味的发展,而不觉得突兀。透过幽默有趣的造型及动作、表情,让故事中的角色,个个活跃起来。
