Smith, David J. If… A Mind-Bending New Way of Looking at Big Ideas and Numbers, illustrated by Steve Adams. NONFICTION 40 pgs. Kids Can Press, 2014. $18.95.
Author David L. Smith describes huge things by scaling them down to the sizes of things we can understand. The distance and comparative size of the planets are compared to fruits on a football field, the history of time on a calendar food production and consumption, slices of bread.
Includes notes for parents, source materials and ideas for additional study. This would be a great resource in a school library or for use in a science class.
