AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In repsonse to their teacher's question 'how big is big?', students at a New South Wales public school counted and measured a variety of things and discovered that bigness includes width, length, mass, volume and other concepts.

Written and illustrated by the students, the reader is taken on an imaginary journey where counting and calculation pervade every aspect of the text.
