Highest Mountain, Smallest Star: A Visual Compendium of Wonders

Written by Kate Baker and Zanna Davidson, Illustrated by Page Tsou

An exploration of natural and manmade wonders told through stunning Victorian-style infographics.

Do you know how tall the tallest mountain on Earth is? Or how deep the deepest ocean goes? Have you ever wondered how a dinosaur would measure up against the Great Pyramid of Giza? Or if a bird could fly faster than an airplane?

This book is FULL of great information told through facts and infographics. The illustrations are amazing. In the short time I have had this book I have had several students captivated by it. There is so much information it will keep kids busy reading for days. The way the information is taught is done in a way that draws the reader in rather than overwhelming them. This book covers many topics, including facts about dinosaur sizes, speed on land and in the air, longest lived creatures, burrowing and deepest land animals, a chapter on the tallest, largest, widest and oldest trees, another on the largest bugs and butterflies, and yet another on the solar system and so much more…
