The way my not-yet 6 year-old looks at the world: (Note: For all the bigness he's obsessed with, you only realise his perspective in the last line.)
What’s the big fishie, Niks?
It’s the biggest creature in the world. A blue whale. But bigger. A blue sperm whale. What’s sperm, Mama?
It’s - ahem -(changing topic) – what’s the thing on top of it?
A dinosaur. Biggest in the world. Its spines can turn into legs when it turns upside down. So it can have 18 legs.
Niks, no one can have 18 legs.
Ok, so what’s the building? Our building?
No – it’s the Burj Khalifa. This dino’s taller than the Burj Khalifa!
Phew, what a big dino!
No, Mama. And here’s the best part. He’s only a baby. See the face? That’s the dino Mama!
WOW! That’s so gigantic, Niks, and what are those birds on the other side?
They’re pterodactyls all flying down towards the dot.
What’s that tiny dot, Niks?
Mama - That’s a Man.
