Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A big book all about bigness!

This BIG title removes the confusion of the abstract by teaching size through eye-catching juxtaposition in "oh wow!" images. For instance, any idea about the size of the mysterious Giant Squid of the deep? Sure, you could read that it's 59.5 ft. long. While that sounds impressive enough, it's a little abstract. However, when you see a full-color illustration of a Giant Squid placed in front of the entire length of a farmhouse, you get a real idea of what 59.5 feet means!

Synopsis:

The all-new Whats the Big Idea? series combines high-impact visuals and a big trim size to teach juxtaposition. In this first title, wildly different objects are take out of their normal context and placed next to one another to allow for new and exciting perspectives. Full color.

This book is fascinating not just for kids but for grown ups too. My daughters teacher had this book at our latest conference to keep her occupied while we talked and I was so distracted by the amazing pictures we had to stop so I could view it. I'm buying one for three friends' kids this year!
