Jason Chin shares The Universe in You: A Microscopic Journey, a dive into the microscopic building blocks of life.
BOOK DESCRIPTION: The Universe in You: A Microscopic Journey by Jason Chin
Jason Chin, winner of the Caldecott Medal for Watercress, dives into the microscopic building blocks of life in this companion to the award-winning Your Place in the Universe.
In Your Place in the Universe, Jason Chin zoomed outward, from our planet, solar system, and galaxy to the outer reaches of the observable universe. Now, Chin reverses course, zooming in past our skin to our cells, molecules, and atoms, all the way down to particles so small we can't yet even measure them.
Like its companion, The Universe in You is a mind-boggling adventure that makes complex science accessible and enjoyable to readers of any age.
Impeccably researched, wholly engrossing, and with extensive backmatter for additional learning, The Universe in You is another knockout from the award-winning creator of Redwoods, Grand Canyon, and other distinguished works of nonfiction for young readers.

TALK ABOUT THE EPISODE:
What is the biggest thing you know on Earth? What about the smallest? How does your size compare to these things?
How does it make you feel to know that you are made of the same molecules and atoms that make up every single thing in the universe?
What do you wonder about things bigger than you? What do you wonder about things smaller than you?
