If: A Mind-Bending New Way of Looking at Big Ideas and Numbers

ifWritten by David J. Smith, Illustrated by Steve Adams

Some things are so huge or so old that it’s hard to wrap your mind around them. But what if we took these big, hard-to-imagine objects and events and compared them to things we can see, feel and touch? Instantly, we’d see our world in a whole new way.

If the entire history of Earth from its very beginning were a two-hour DVD, humans would appear in the last second of the video. This is just one fact from this fascinating book that puts things in perspective making it easier for us to understand and appreciate. This book makes for a great interactive learning experience. It is a remarkable and amazing book full of facts and information that will grab the attention of the reader. I really enjoyed the comparisons they used and the information they gave.
