Davey BigHead: Dream Big

Davey BigHead: Dream Big

A lighthearted romp of a children’s tale, Davey Bighead, Dream Big introduces a wildly fun and altogether fascinating character in children’s literature. Author and illustrator Peter J. Hayden creates an inspiring, lovable, and completely unforgettable kid whose name is Davey, also known as Davey Bighead. While some children have their heads in the clouds, by the title one might guess that Davey’s head is as round and big as one. Barely able to fit his noggin through a school bus door or even through the neck of his own tee shirt, Davey knows his head is larger than average. Admittedly, Davey has a head bigger than a watermelon, which his classmates poke fun at him for until they learn that when it comes to being the winning goalie on a winning soccer team, a big head comes in handy. Go Davey Bighead! Written for beginning and intermediate readers, this fable is certain to become a classic tale of embracing and celebrating individuality.

I liked this book, the illustrations were great and this story teaches children that it is okay to be different. This book has not too many pages and is easy for beginner readers to read in one sitting. My granddaughter loved this book and her and I can’t wait for the next one to come out. I would put this book at reading level 6-10 years. My granddaughter is 6 and it was very easy for her to read.
