This is a great new book that compares two things visually so the reader can get an idea of the relative size. For example, the Blue Whale's heart is the size of a small car.

With amazing pictures and interesting facts, this book is sure to get a lot of use! Recommended for readers in 2nd grade and above, y

If you're a fan of those giant Guinness books like I am, or of those Top 10 books, like me, then this makes a sterling addition to that collection. The comparison angle is a clever gimmick, and makes for great reading with a curious 5-year old, because the visuals are just that dazzling and self-explanatory. Nicely packaged, this product, and the content well-curated.
