Big and Small, Room for All by Jo Ellen Bogart
From the immensity of the cosmos to the miraculous world of things too small to see, this stunning board book is a celebration of how we are all connected to the universe and to each other.
For the first time in board book format, this concept book by award-winning author Jo Ellen Bogart explores the size of animate and inanimate objects and their places in the universe. She introduces children to the concept of "we" -- that humans are a big part of the world, but a small part of all of existence.
In the vastness of the universe, with galaxies swirling through space, the book begins with simple words printed on the darkness. Moving closer to our world, we see the solar system, our sun at the center. Closer still, we see the huge ball of fire, the sun, and the third planet out from it -- our blue Earth. From Earth looming huge on the page, young readers view smaller and smaller things, from mountain to tree to man to child to kitten to mouse to flea to microscopic beings, amazing in their complexity.
