About The Book

Size is relative, but everything is worth seeing in this concept book from the illustrator of And Tango Makes Three—now available in a brand-new format with spiral binding and cardstock pages for an engaging read-aloud experience.

Beginning with a beautiful close-up of a “big” ladybug, this adorable book artfully depicts the concept of scale as it zooms out from the bug and moves to a flower, a cow, and all the way to an expansive spread of sky. Young readers will love the simple text and lush illustrations of the animals, objects, and scenery of a farm, and they’ll delight in seeing how something can be “big” then seem very “little” when they turn the page!

This beloved sweet story about size and scale is now available in a Storytime Together edition, which is designed so the book can be folded in half and easily read aloud to an audience. The text will face the reader and the illustrations will face the audience. The spiral-bound book also comes with a cardstock jacket for convenient shelving and storage. This innovative format is sure to bring a rollickingly fun storytime experience to classrooms, libraries, living rooms, and video calls with family and friends!
