Just how big is a crocodile? What about a tiger, or the worldand#8217;s largest spider? Can you imagine a tongue that is two feet long or an eye that is bigger than your head? Sometimes facts and figures donand#8217;t tell the whole story. In this visually stunning book, seeing is believing as Steve Jenkins illustrates animals both large and small at ACTUAL SIZE.

This is an amazing book to inspire children's curiosity...I taught a class of 1st and 2nd graders, many considered "at-risk", in a special summer school enrichment program to enhance reading and math skills. I used the rainforest as our theme, and each child chose an animal to research. One day I shared Actual Size, and immediately children were ASKING to learn about the size of their chosen rainforest animal. They searched through books and the internet for information. In the classroom, we walked off the 36 feet of the longest-recorded anaconda, measured the length of the jaguar's tail, the wingspan of the Blue Morpho butterfly...children asked to cut out "actual size" examples for their display boards, found other objects that were the actual size of whatever they had measured for their animal, and compared thier animal sizes with one another. "Mine's bigger, twice as big!" (And they didn't even know they were doing math or improving their reading!)
