Friends Carlo and Marco learn the effects of bullying on their self-images and that positive relationships help them grow.
A discussion page appears at the end of the story to help foster a deeper understanding of the issue of bullying, and to put the story in perspective. The author creates empathy for the victims while at the same time showing that bullies don’t feel good about themselves.
Big and Small in the Mirror is the first of a trilogy of books about bullying that happens at school. The author uses the same characters and setting as The Magic Leaf — Carlo and Marco in a small Italian town named Roseto. Each book will focus on a different aspect of bullying.

Big and Small in the Mirror
A creative and entertaining story about a problem children often deal with. Seeing it through the eyes of Marco and Danny will help them understand and respond to similar situations. I recommend this book as a good shared reading for parent and child.
