It's a Small World


FACES Magazine July-August 2021. Toy trains, bonsai, and a colony of ants. Learn how some of the smallest things on Earth can have a big impact!

Take a big look at little things with this edition of FACES Magazine. From small cities and little people to miniature trees and tiny fiddles, you’ll see how size really doesn’t matter when it comes to all things that are cool and interesting.


Bigger isn’t always better. In fact, try this on for size: engineers at the University of Michigan created a COMPUTER in 2018 that is smaller than a grain of rice! Fun facts like that make up this the focus of FACES Magazine. You’ll learn about the smallest animals, the smallest continent, a very small city, tiny trees, tiny homes, tiny books, and more. Complete with stunning photographs, entertaining puzzles and games, excellent stories and more, you won’t believe how big small things can be.
