The Itty Bitty Witch
Betty can’t wait to be a first-grade witch. But on the first day of school, her classmates start calling her “Itty Bitty” because she’s small and still uses her kinder-broom. Betty doesn’t like the nickname—or how it makes her feel itty-bitty inside. So she comes up with a BIG idea to prove herself: winning the Halloween Dash.

    This book is outstandingly lovely. The message is sends to children is empowering and thoughtful, and the artwork is stunning. I stared at the pages long after I finished reading the words. This is would be a great addition to a home, school or public library. It's especially fitting for Halloween!*I was provided a free copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway.

In the realm of children's books there are beings who are not costumed. They don't pretend to be ghosts, witches, superheroes, robots, famous or fictional personalities because that's who they are. The Itty-Bitty Witch (Two Lions, July 16, 2019) written by Trisha Speed Shaskan with illustrations by Xindi Yan is a warmhearted story of using what others see as a fault to seize the day.My full recommendation: https://librariansquest.blogspot.com/...

    A cute story about a witch trying to be treated not so itty bitty...until she finds her small size can be a benefit!

    Super cute- a good look on how being small is okay! My boys loved the ending (the play on itty bitty)

    The Itty Bitty Witch is a story of persistence and can easily be used at the start of the school year as a read aloud to build SEL conversations around name calling, celebrating differences, and perseverance. Betty enters first grade, and by the time they reach their very first morning circle, classmates begin teasing her about her size and call her "Itty Bitty" and tease her about still having her "kinder broom". This is a simple story, but one that children would enjoy.
