What's the Big Idea? is a new series that combines high-impact visuals and (what else?) a big trim size to teach through juxtaposition. Wildly different objects are taken out of their normal context and placed next to one another to allow for new and exciting perspectives. In How Big Is It?, readers will be able to easily comprehend the idea of size by seeing an extraordinary item placed next to a more ordinary item or environment. How tall is a giraffe? 17.3 feet...or: If one was standing in your living room, you'd have to cut a hole in the ceiling and its head would reach the top of a secondfloor bedroom!

It's obvious i'm a kid at heart. I enjoyed looking at this book which gives you pictures of how large,long, or big some of earth's creatures and objects are. The cover says it all. I like the photographs. It's a cool book. I give this book 4 stars.
