Alex is smaller than everybody he knows. He doesn't like being so little. He asks his mother, he asks his sister, and he asks his teacher to help him find a way to grow bigger. But the advice they give him doesn't work. "You'll grow soon, Alex" they all tell him. But soon is not good enough for Alex, he wants to be bigger Now! Then his tall Uncle Danny shows Alex what it really means to be big.

For anyone who's ever been unhappy with their size, Alex helps us realize that it's the size of your heart, not the length of your legs, that really matters.
