"Fun comparisons for kids. How far away is the moon? How big is a blue whale's heart? How heavy are 10,000 pounds? Distance, weight, and size are difficult to grasp until contrasted with other quantities. How Big is Big? How Far is Far? renders measurements and dimensions more comprehensible through amusing comparisons. Did you know, for example, that the rhinoceros beetle can carry up to 850 times its own weight? Or that it would take eight days of travel in an elevator through the Earth's center to reach the other end? Full of surprising facts and clever illustrations, this book depicts entertaining juxtapositions that aim to rouse children's curiosity about the world around them."--Back cover.
