How Big Is Big? How Far Is Far? All Around Me

Each spread invites the child to imagine, test, interact and measure. Designed to be playful in its approach by using relatable comparisons that are brought into the child’s own daily sphere.

Language Edition
How Big is Big? How Far is Far? All Around Me was created to inform imaginatively. After all, why not measure how dense the densest fur could be by the size of a thumb? Or think of speed as though it were a snowflake gliding through the air? Jun Cen’s artwork uses a muted palette and minimal graphics which pay homage to the vintage ladybird pocketbook classics, whilst the design and typography lends it a modern breath for playful learning.

How Big is Big? How Far is Far? All Around Me is the follow-on title from the Little Gestalten favourite How big is Big? How Far is Far?. Taking new comparisons which focus on our planet, not only will children learn about all the different ways to measure, but they’ll also discover new facts about the incredible world we live in. Warning: parents may need to buy a measuring tape.

*Please note that the UK language version uses the metric measurement system and the US version uses the imperial measurement system. Both editions are written in standard US English.
