Big Enough by Ofelia Dumas Lachtman

Who says that Lupita is “too little?” Not Chief Cobb, the friendly policeman. Not Mrs. Foote, the local gas-station owner. Not even Mr. Grabb, the strange new visitor to town. But in Big Enough / Bastante grande by award-winning author Ofelia Dumas Lachtman, Mamá always sighs, “Muy, muy chica,” every time Lupita tries to help out at the restaurant that Mamá runs all by herself. And yet, when push comes to shove—or, in this case, when Grabb comes to swipe—everyone in this bilingual tale for ages 3 to 7 discovers that, although Lupita may be too little for some tasks, for others she is big enough.
