Publisher's Summary

"When I was little, I could hardly do anything. But now I can do lots of things, like braid my own hair and go to nmusery school. I'm not a baby anymore. I'm me!"

Jamie Lee Curtis perfectly 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. This spirited view of growing up is perfect for the youngest readers.

My kids really like this book!

Would you consider the audio edition of When I Was Little to be better than the print version?

I haven't seen the print version, but I would say no. The only reason I would prefer the book to this audio is because I don't think JLC narrates it very well (and yes, I realize she wrote it). I just think I could read this book to my children in a much more interesting way and with much more enthusiasm...

What aspect of Jamie Lee Curtis’s performance would you have changed?

She's not a very enthusiastic reader, I find her voice very bland.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not me, but my children like it.

Any additional comments?

Although I have negative comments concerning the reading of the book, I do like the book and let me say that my children actually ask to hear this one so I did rate it above average and have since purchased additional books by JLC.
