2019 Children's Literary Classics Book Awards Gold Winner
"What happens when you are a Bigwig that wants more and more?
What happens when enough is never enough?
And what can you learn from those who have less or even from those who have nothing?
These questions and more are answered in a creative and imaginative children's book by Sonya Annita Song.
The City of More follows the Bigwigs and their porcine companions as they shop for everything they don't need. When their purchases build up to an incredible amount, they seek advice from the Smallwigs of the City of Less. The Smallwigs help the Bigwigs to see that real prosperity comes from sharing with others.
Reminiscent of Dr. Seuss and delightfully illustrated by Daniel Howard, this book educates and entertains at the same time!"
- Dawn Weaver for Readers' Favorite (read full review in "Review" section)
City of More encourages compassion, sharing, and kindness as it teaches children not to want so much stuff and shows them how rewarding it can be to share with others.
This is a must-have children's book in schools and homes that introduces themes of materialism, inequality, and poverty in a thoughtful and entertaining way.
