How fast is 120 kilometers per hour? How heavy are 4 tons? Units of measure are abstract—until, that is, they are contrasted with other quantities. The juxtapositions in How Big Is Big? How Far Is Far? make dimensions and measurements more comprehensible for children. It is filled with illustrations by Jan Van Der Veke, available in English and in German. I will totally get this for my kids.
I got this one and their “Alphabetics” book for my 2.5 year-old son and he LOVED them! Thanks for sharing!
