It is just a regular morning for Kiki. She has to brush her teeth, get dressed, and help make breakfast. But the toothpaste won’t stay on the brush; the zipper won’t cooperate; and the peanut butter clumps on her toast. After she responds with disappointment and anger, Kiki’s parents remind her that these things are "no biggies," encouraging her toward success through optimism and second (and sometimes third) attempts. Young children will recognize not only the things that Kiki has to do at home and school, but also the feelings she has when, despite her earnest efforts, she can’t get everything right on the first try.
Brightly colored and encouraging illustrations picture Kiki throughout the day—right to her bedtime bubble bath—learning that most things are not biggies. Readers will learn it, too.
