About the Author

David J Smith is an award-winning author and an educational consultant who lectures all over the world about 'big' topics. He has been featured in BBC interviews online and in news magazines.


Even as adults, there are many numbers which are so mind-boggling that we just can't take them in,so just imagine how hard children must find it to assimilate big numbers. This clever book brings things down to a human scale by comparing huge events, times and space with thing we can touch in our daily lives ... It's a book to fascinate all age groups, and will be brilliant in the classroom to help with maths science and other subjects. Quite brilliant * Parents In Touch *
Ingenious illustrations which not only make this book a valuable classroom resource but give it the 'wow' factor for young information seekers * Evening Echo (Cork) *
A fascinating information picture book ... By means of relatively spare, carefully written text and illuminating and entertaining infographics Smith and Adams make complex facts to do with time, history, space and life itself comprehensible ... Thoroughly recommended for classrooms and libraries ... children (and adults) will pore over it * School Librarian *
This beautifully illustrated book introduces the idea of scale to students. Big questions are explored in a way that will really appeal to visual learners and may prompt students to explore the ideas further.... I would recommend this book to students in key stages 2 and 3, particularly those interested in exploring big science questions and embarking on projects. * School Science Review *
