A nice concept book on relative size. Useful for units on measurement or the solar system (the book quickly moves from comparing living things to discussing outer space.) Read full review

Really enjoy this simple introduction into the 'large' things of the universe. Great science book for small children. It tries to give you perspective of how 'big' the universe is. Fun illustrations. Read full review
