If only the little brother was as tall as his big brother! Then he could read or climb onto a chair to grab the delicious cookies. If he had the long legs of a giraffe, he could overtake his big brother riding his bike. But he would not fit into the bike trailer anymore to snack on the cookies. If he had big hands like a gorilla, the little brother could open the cookie jar and eat up lots of cookies. But he would not fit into his playhouse anymore if he was as big as a gorilla.
If he had a big mouth like a crocodile, he could tell his big brother that he had to go to bed early! But, then, who would tell him funny stories after dinner? And if he was as big as a monster? However, it turns out that it is good to have small hands, small legs and a small mouth!
