Enormous Smallness

Enormous Smallness is a nonfiction picture book about the poet E. E. Cummings. Here E.E.’s life is presented in a way that will make children curious about him and will lead them to play with words and ask plenty of questions as well. Lively and informative, the book also presents some of Cummings’s most wonderful poems, integrating them seamlessly into the story to give the reader the music of his voice and a spirited, sensitive introduction to his poetry.

“This book proves that the old saying “Good things come in small packages” is true. Edward Estlin Cummings became one of the great poets of our country by writing small, short poems which celebrate the everyday pleasures in life – birds, snowflakes, and even grasshoppers. His ability to write poetry showed at an early age as his mother wrote down his first poem when he was only three! Later he chose to use only small letters when writing poetry and signing his name. Even if you aren’t a reader of biographies, you will find this small biography enjoyable, fascinating, and candy for the eyes. Nonfiction with ZING!”
