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.

Review quote

"At the ripe old age of four and a half, a sophisticated little girl clad in petticoats, ribbons, and her mother's high-heeled shoes proudly boasts about her wonderful accomplishments. . . . The simple text is funny and honest, perfectly capturing the whimsical, innocent way that children view the world."School Library Journal"Her rollicking enthusiasm is infectious, especially in the joyous, chaotic, colorful watercolors."
