K-Gr 2–This juvenile nonfiction picture book will teach young readers the concept of comparison. Despite a lack of sources listed, topics are clearly explained with simple text to capture children’s interest. Gifford spotlights the wonders of the world and introduces vocabulary, math, and science through comparisons of size, speed, temperature, distance, migration, the Earth’s atmosphere, seasons, dinosaurs, and more. Memory and counting quizzes enhance the book’s appeal. Children with a budding appreciation of world records could use this book as an entry point.
VERDICT An accessible, fun way to learn a bit of science and math.
