Summary
Which weighs more, a pound of lead or a pound of feathers? How many ants does it take to steal a piece of cake? Life-size photos and a clever text explore concepts of size, measurement, time, and more.

Are you curious about numbers, size, and how something small stacks up to something big, like the number of grains of sand that fill a bucket? Using life-size photographs, engaging gatefolds, and witty asides, Jorge Doneiger beautifully demonstrates relative size, along with quantitative information that answers questions about all kinds of creatures and objects. If you unraveled all the thread from a T-shirt, how many times would that thread wrap around a city block? How many balloons could you fill with the air you breathe in one day? How many flowers must a hive of bees visit to collect enough pollen to make a pound of honey? Is it possible to measure time in colors? Back matter offers additional facts on the subjects for curious readers.
