      Good question AmieGreenall!

      Stars come in all colours and sizes. Our Sun may seem big to us but compared to other stars its really not that big at all! There are stars smaller than our Sun called dwarf stars or stars many times bigger called Red and White giants. Watch this video get some idea of size:

      What Simon said 🙂
      Ridiculously big!!! Several hundred Earths at least could fit in a just a small sized star.
