A fantastic concertina book that serves as a height chart and a measuring tool to help curious kids get excited about mathematics and measuring. On one side it's a beautiful vintage-style height chart that can be hung on a wall. Flip it over, and it's an activity book that kids are invited to take around the house filling it in; what's bigger-your teddy or a box of cereal? Your mom or your bathtub? When folded, the book measures exactly one foot long, helping make the concept of length more digestible. Weight and volume are also explored. With bold pantone colors and immaculate slipcase packaging, this is both utilitarian design and practical math in action!Eleonora Marton is an Italian illustrator and artist living and working in London.

Editorial Reviews

Bigger asks all sorts of mathy questions (fun ones, actually!). The book is made up of one giant ruler that you can fold out, lay on the floor and use to measure. There are opportunities for comparing and estimating, and fun tidbits about world height and length records. Both centimeters and inches are used in the book. -AveryandAugustine
