Amazon Review

This large format version of the Pat Hutchins' classic picture book is perfect for sharing with groups of children. The regular sized edition of this book is also available.

In childhood, being the youngest often means you're the littlest, too. For Titch, it also means Getting the smallest bike--a tricycle, actually--while his older brother and sister get the bigger ones. When his siblings receive glorious, wind-dancing kites, Titch gets a dinky little pinwheel. When big brother and sister get to handle grown-up-sized tools, Titch gets to hold the nail. Author Pat Hutchins, winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal for The Wind Blew, shows great compassion for the curse of the youngest, especially in her drawings of Titch's wrinkly, down-turned mouth and his desperate little eyes. In fact, her no-frills illustrations are the perfect reflection of Titch's inescapable plight as the lowest rung on the ladder. In the end, Hutchins presents an opportunity for Titch to be more important and symbolically bigger than either of his siblings. The last born in any family will especially appreciate the littlest one's rising moment of glory--literally--that comes in the satisfying end. (0 to 5 years) --Gail Hudson, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Pat Hutchin's "Titch," first published in 1971, tells of poor little Titch, who has a sister Mary, who was a bit bigger, and a brother Peter, who was a lot bigger. It seems everything his big brother and sister have is always bigger and better than what Twitch has to play with each day. But then one day Titch discovers that something little can grow very big indeed.
If you have a family like I do, where there is a boy, a girl and a baby, then "Titch" is a nice way of letting your youngest know that being the youngest does not always mean that you have the least important role to play. Hutchins tells his story with an economy that will make an impression on any young child old enough to recognize that being the youngest is not a lot of fun sometimes. Even better, Hutchins has a series of books devoted to Titch, which means that once you child is hooked on the character, there are more books for them to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars My all-time favorite book! 8 April 1997
By A Customer
As the youngest in my family, I have appreciated this children's book more than any other. It accurately portrays the feelings of insignificance the baby of the family may have while watching older siblings experience things first. Titch is finally validated when his seed not only grows big, but is necessary to make what his siblings have useful; even more than being equal, he is needed. As a child, I had this book in paperback; recently, I received a hard-cover copy. I am now 26 with this book on my shelf, always ready to provide a smile. I plan to give this book as a gift to any "youngest" I know!

This book is a lovely story, particularly suitable for 5-6 year old children. I ordered this book to use in a literacy lesson with my year 1 class and it was greatly enjoyed by everyone. It was a good quality book at a very reasonable price.
