Summary
"How Many Mice Make an Elephant? And Other Big Questions about Size and Distance introduces children to a world of fascinating information by comparing sizes and distances in an easily relatable way. A wide range of subjects are covered, including animals, the human body, engineering, Earth, and space, to explore the answers to questions such as "How many ice cubes make an iceberg?", "How many high jumps to the Moon?" and "How many planet Earths fit inside the Sun?" The math and logic behind each comparison is explained clearly and simply."--Amazon.com
