Living Science Author: Robert E. Wells
Giving children a sense of perspective can be challenging. Robert E. Wells has written a series of colorful, engaging, and detailed books that demonstrate a variety of perspectives in a fun and lasting way. What's Smaller Than A Pygmy Shrew? is about size, from atoms to the universe. His other titles include Can You Count To A Googol?, What's Faster Than A Speeding Cheetah, What Is Older Than A Giant Tortoise?, How Do You Know What Time It Is?, Is A Blue Whale The Biggest Thing There is?, and Did A Dinosaur Drink This Water? And then there's more science-based How Do You Lift A Lion? about using simple machines to move heavy objects. These are family favorites!
