    About Robert WellsRobert E Wells is the author and illustrator of many intriguing and award winning science books for children He lives with his wife in Wenatchee, Washington.Welcome Robert E Wells s books into your classroom, and you ll find most ofyour science curriculum covered The twelve volumes engaging and informative,educational and inviting provide second through fifth graders with lessons inscience and math from astronomy to weather from biology to measurement.Beyond the solid information that is the core of each book, Wells also introducesconcepts that offer students deeper understanding of the subjects at hand Hisconversational tone and thought provoking questions will lead children to questionsof their own And that is the beginning of all scientific learning.


    My son and I read this book as a part of Sonlight's P4/5 curriculum. This is the third book we've read by Robert E. Wells and I am in love with his books. He has this wonderful way of taking complex science and mathematics concepts and making them accessible to preschoolers and young children. My son has also greatly enjoyed reading them. In What's Smaller Than a Pygmy Shrew? we are introduced to the world of the impossibly small. We are introduced to the Pygmy Shrew, a very tiny mammal, and fro [...]

    This book introduces children to small things -- it begins with a pygmy shrew compared to an elephant, moves on to a ladybug, then moves on to single-celled organisms, and all the way down to atoms and their components. It is certainly an interesting book, but I think it doesn't hold my children's attention quite as well as some of the others in the Wells of Knowledge series -- which is understandable. At least in Is a Blue Whale the Biggest Thing There Is? the comparisons involve big things chi [...]

    I like this book because when the Pygmy shrew looked at a elephant and thought he was the smallest thing in the universe but then a lady bug looks at the pygmy shrew and thinks he is the smallest thing in the universe but then the lady bug flies onto a leaf and the leaf has a bubble and in the bubble are little cells and the cells look and the lady bug and think they are the smallest thing in the universe and then it tells me about atoms and what are in atoms and stuff like that.

    I like the author Robert E Wells because he makes the reader think and compare those things that may seem one way but can also mean the total opposite. The literature connects with comparing measurmnets and the use of probability. It really focused on the size or measurment of the shrew and hiw he compared his size to other animals or things. However, he realized that compared to certain things he could either be giant, or tiny. I could use this book to teach decimals, or even number line. It ca [...]

    Can you explain particle physics to a preschooler? Robert E. Wells can. Simple text and engaging illustrations will have you and your children discussing atoms, bacteria, protons and protozoa. A learning experience for parents and children that can start in preschool and continue many years in the future. Smaller seems harder to understand than larger, and we were a bit intimidated at first. We focused on "What is Larger than a Blue Whale?" and then worked this one in. Now it is a natural counte [...]

    This book starts off talking about how a pygmy shrew is smaller than an elephant. But what's smaller than a pygmy shrew? A ladybug. What's smaller than a ladybug? An amoeba. What's smaller than amoeba? Bacteria. And so on, down to electrons and quarks.The colorful pictures can interest smaller children, but the subject matter is appropriate for elementary and junior high school kids. The illustrations are not that exciting when it gets down to the really small particles. But I guess it is not th [...]

    Robert Wells' books are great ways to expose children to complex science ideas in a very simple manner. Most children may not get them right away, but they are written simply and if read several times the scientific terms will not seem so foreign or difficult to understand when studied in school. My boys are very much entertained by these books.

    We read this when we were studying chemistry a year ago. We all loved it. Cute illustrations that really add to comprehension and very clear explanations of difficult concepts like protons and quarks.Very highly recommended. I think you could use it in the middle school, possibly junior high level too as either a review or introduction.

    Awesome book for an introduction into the concept of an atom. This books compares things to other things that are small, unti they get to the smallest thng there is; an atom. This book could be used in a elementary science class.

    Great book that compares sizes of animals down to protozoa. I think it's good for everything to teaching nonstandard measurement, fractions, decimals.

    This book involves greater, larger, smaller, bigger, opposites, measurements, and science. Good for teaching a range of math and science.


    It was kind of cool learning about the smallest things in the world, like electrons, atoms, and stuff like that. I really enjoy these kind of books, science book are my favorite!

    OMG I LOVE THAT BOOK! I used to read everyday with my friend emily! We made up a secret theme song for it lol. *spoiler alert* a ladybug is smaller than a pygmy shrew

    Another great science book for the pre-school/Kindergarten/Elementary ages. My son is still talking about this book a week later!

    Ask what is smaller than a small animal. The book goes through and find micro tiny objects to how the difference in very small objects

    This series is an absolute favorite in our home. Robert Wells makes topics so understandable for kids and presents them in a fun way.

    Size, gets smaller and smaller.

    A great simple introduction into the 'small' things of our world. Useful for gentle introduction to science for preschoolers. Will pull this out again next time we talk about atoms or molecules. :)

    Absolutely wonderful! Great teaching tool for kids.

    This is a fun look at the molecular world. It is very basic, which was perfect for my little ones in preschool, but still interesting for my older ones to learn and ask questions. 4.5 stars

    Another great scientific book by Robert E. Wells, this book has a similar format like the others that gets your attention and keeps you hooked on science.

    Introduction into molecules, atoms, protons and neutrons. Great fun.

    This book is showing smaller than. Teaching children the concept of smaller. Also shows ver small objects in magnifying glass. Great introduction to a science lesson
