Just the Right Size: Why Big Animals Are Big and Little Animals Are Little by Nicola Davies

Just the Right SizeJust the Right Size by Nicola Davies explains why super-strong giants like King Kong can’t exist using simple math and science in real life.  If you can do multiplication, you can understand this book!  From tiny single cell animals to giant whales and dinosaurs—all are explained using one simple rule. This is part of why ants are stronger for their size than gorillas, and if a giant spider (like in Lord of the Rings) existed, its weight would snap off all it’s legs!  If you like learning about how the world works, this is a really cool book.
