How Big Is It? is an informational book that compares incredibly large items to ordinary everyday items. For example, the world's largest spider is compared to the outer rim of a dinner plate; the world's largest telescope is compared to the height of the Eiffel Tower. Students would truly understand the greatness of these items as they are compared to seemingly ordinary recognizable items. Each page is filled with large photographs that depict the immense size of these.I enjoyed reading this in [...]

This is the kind of book that I would have been obsessed with as a child. Computer-generated photos use perspective and ratio to show giant things (a giant squid, the Goliath Bird-eating Spider, the Arecibo Radio Telescope) in relation to something else (a two-story house, a dinner plate, and the Eiffel Tower, respectively) to show just how *giant* the giant things are. Interesting and humorous information can be found in the sidebars. Awesome stuff, and a must-booktalk for tweens on school visi [...]

This non-fiction book presents different objects that the student wouldn’t be familiar with and shows how big they are by comparing them to, for instance, houses, states and dinner plates that the student would know the size of. This is helpful because it gives students a sense of the physical size of objects that they would rarely, if ever, come into contact with.I liked the book but think it would be more effective if it cut down on a little on the variety of objects it showed and, maybe, ju [...]

This book made me realize that I have grabby hands and am attracted to sparkly objects. It greeted me from out the staff corridor at work, sitting innocently on the children's book shelf. But it was full of interesting big things. The biggest polar bear stood up at 12 feet, the giraffe eats acacia leaves, the solar system has huge stars that are millions of light years away so that if they exploded it would look like they were still there for millions of years even if they weren't. Pyramids, vol [...]

Fabulous fun! My five-year old grandsons adored this book as much as I did. Photo shopped photos compare BIG things to familiar objects, giving kids a really tangible sense of just how big is big. There is a polar bear standing next to a basketball hoop, a flying dinosaur compared to a jet plane and a huge spider on a dinner plate. The images jump off the page and the text is humorous and fascinating. We've been reading this over and over ;-) Great all ages book!

--grades 2-8--bigness is sometime hard to comprehend when you have no reference for comparison.--author takes things students know the size of and compares them with objects they may not know.--Great Pyramid of Giza is 8 train-cars tall--Polar Bear on a basketball court-- Steve Jenkins also has some great books for comparing speeds, size, and weight with common objects.

Wonderful illustrations inserting the subject in a scene for size comparisons! Great teaching book for kids - whether they are visual learners or just love reading facts in text. Fourth and fifth graders will appreciate the book as a whole, but younger kids can learn the size comparisons from the visual art alone, if you "read" them the tale by abridging the book, in your own words.

The amazing photos detailing precisely how large an object being discussed makes this book. The side by side comparison within each well done photo allows the reader to envision the scale. My favorite? The Ice Age Glacier in comparison to the skyline of Chicago. Stunning!

Alice picked out this oversize book at the library describing the size of things in relation to other things. We didn't go through all the narratives, but we compared all the pictures and talked about the size of things. It was fun.

Huge photo spreads and minimal text make this just right for a little browser--a great way to illustrate actual size. Check out the polar bear, and the dinner-plate sized tarantula.
