How Much Does a Ladybird Weigh?

What does a little ladybird weigh? A snail? A swan? In her extraordinary picture book Alison Limentani introduces children to a fascinating world of wildlife, weight, numbers, and comparisons. Did you know that five starlings weigh the same as one squirrel – or that three rabbits weigh the same as one fox cub? Kids – and parents, too – will be amazed and amused by every surprising and intriguing page.

Our Review Panel says...

Weight and mass often mean little to children without context. This book is brilliant for offering the context to the topic, with each page building on the last to compare the weight of different animals. It is fascinating to read the comparisons and children will begin to formulate their own questions and hypotheses long after the book is finished.
