If …A Mind-Bending New Way of Looking at Big Ideas and Number by David J. Smith
Published by New Frontier Publishing
This book is a truly innovative way of introducing the vastness of all that surrounds us and putting it into terms that kids can relate to. In the author’s words, the book is about seeing our world in a new way, by scaling down, or shrinking huge events, spaces and times to something we can understand.
With topics like Our Galaxy, Life on Earth, Inventions in the last 1000 years, Money, Energy, Population, Food, Your life, and many more, the book is peppered with fun and educational facts and wonderful illustrations to help kids to understand both simple and complex concepts.
I believe it will keep kids aged 6-10 turning the pages, eager to find out the next weird and wonderful comparison on how scaling down, really does give us greater insight into the wonders of our world.
