Review: Davey Bighead, Dream Big by Peter J Hayden

Belly laughs coming from the kitchen!

I went to investigate -- if there's something THAT funny, I want to be a part of it!

I ran into the kitchen to find my 7 year old reading Davey Big Head to my 4 year-old, and they were loving it!

Davey is the lovable title character in Peter J. Hayden's new children's book, Davey BigHead: Dream Big . Davey is going off to school for the first time, and worries about fitting in...literally. You see, Davey just doesn't have a big head, he has an enormous head that gets in the way of everything and everyone. Davey can't pull the shirt on over his head, he can't get through the school bus door to ride to school, he blocks all the kids in class who are sitting behind him, and he can't seem to get out of the way while playing the ever-dreaded dodge ball in gym class (my kids' favorite part of the book). Davey is discouraged, and dreads going back to school, until he has a bright idea that makes him the star of the soccer team!

Hayden's children's book has bright, eye-catching illustrations, great flow from page to page, appropriate vocabulary for children, and has a warm-hearted message. My kids, and even my husband, really enjoyed this book, and were even more excited to learn that it is the first in a series. We're looking forward to more adventures from Davey Big Head!

Special thanks to Peter J. Hayden and Bostick for this wonderful children's book.
