From the Inside Flap

"Can You See Me?"

Things that are small to you...

could be humongous to others!'

Things that look big right here...

could seem tiny from over there!

Whether you're an ant,

an elephant or YOU...

it's all a matter of perspective!" 

Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

This book will get kids thinking. Can something be both BIG and small?  Things are not always what we think they are!  The book points out that buildings, streets, and cities are all BIG while paper clips, daisies, and teaspoons are small.  But if you are an ant or a flea those Big things are HUMUNGOUS and even the small things are HUGE to them.  It all depends on who is doing the looking. 

The author has included fun interesting facts along the way such as:  a flea can jump 100x their own height, an ant can carry 50x its weight, and a lady bug is able to float in water for 24 hours.  Kids will love to learn those astounding truths.  The illustrations are simple and powerful.  I particularly love the cover, it catches your attention and lures you in to find out more of the book's content.  

The author makes the point that we live in a BIG world with many small world's in it and it is great fun to discover and explore both.  I recommend this book.
