Start Small, Think Big sets readers on a journey of discovery, beginning with small miracles of life and connecting them to the big picture of our natural world. Each book features a large fold-out illustration on the final pages.

Little Brown Nut starts small, with a large fruit falling from the
tallest tree in the Amazon rainforest. Inside is a little brown
Brazil nut, surrounded by 20 others. It sits and waits for an
agouti, a rodent with teeth so strong that it can free the nut
from its hard casing. The story of the Brazil nut tree and the
agouti is told clearly and carefully, with facts about germination,
photosynthesis, seed dispersal. The narrative progresses in a
way that builds understanding and the gorgeous illustrations
bring the story and the science to life

Thinking big, the book shows why the rainforest is important to
local people and the wider world. A big fold-out has a world
map, an at-a-glance lifecycle, and a Rainforest I-Spy of the
animals to take readers back into the book.
