Excellent book for small children who ask big questions
on 18 July 2005
This is a really great book to share with a 5 to 7 year old who has started asking big questions about our place in the world and the world's place in the universe. Unlike most other 'kid's cosmology' books which jump straight into the names of planets and lots of other facts, this book concentrates on trying to develop an understanding of the mind-boggling bigness of the universe by building up from relatively smaller things (like blue whales, mount everest, crates full of sun-sized oranges).
