Description

See below for English description.

Dans ce nouvel album, l'auteur David J. Smith se sert d'images pour illustrer des concepts difficiles à saisir. Ainsi les enfants peuvent les comprendre plus facilement. Les planètes deviennent des ballons de diverses dimensions, notre galaxie est représentée par un petit pois posé sur une immense assiette et la Terre est une pomme coupée en quartiers. Avec un texte simple et des illustrations éloquentes, cet album offre plus qu'un nouveau regard sur le monde, il ouvre la porte à une foule d'activités ludiques, basées sur l'utilisation de la mise à l'échelle comme moyen d'apprentissage.


This new book by David J. Smith takes immeasurable things and brings them down in size and uses everyday, household objects to show size and scale comparison. Children will learn the sizes of the planets using various balls, the size of our solar system if we shrunk the Milky Way to the size of a dinner plate, and much more. Minimal text in a visually stimulating book illustrated by Steve Adams, opens up the mind and provides information in a fascinating way.

Original title: If: A Mind-Bending New Way of Looking at Big Ideas and Numbers
