Size is relative, but everything is worth seeing in this concept book from the illustrator of "And Tango Makes Three."
Beginning with a beautiful close-up of a big ladybug, this book artfully depicts the concept of scale. The book zooms out from the bug, to a flower, to a cow, all the way to an expansive spread of sky. Then Henry Cole masterfully zooms back in from that sky, to a tree, to a house, to a window, all the way to the end where an adorable dog is taking a little nap.
In this ideal introduction to the concept of scale, young readers will love the lush illustrations of the animals, objects, and scenery of a farm, and they ll delight in seeing how something big can suddenly seem little with the turn of a page
