    I just finished reading Grayson by Lynne Cox. She recounts in the epilogue how a class of 3rd graders made an 18 foot drawing of the baby whale so they could understand just how large he was. It is wrapped around walls of their classroom. That’s how they made that memoir leave the book. So cool to try to really understand scale.
