    Small refers to size. Little in this particular use can refer to size as well, but also can be used to infer that the girl is young. "She is just a little girl, she is too young to know better."

    We usually use "A little girl" to describe girls at a young "age." Let's say, 10 below. While "Small girl" refers to the girl's build. And small girls are the ones with short height and lesser mass compared to others.
