How can I expand text with explaination

I want to create a homepage. I want to be able to have text that appears like this but when a user hovers over it the text expands (and becomes bigger on where-ever their pointer is at). Is there anyway I could do this?

You can do this with a CSS style
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
p {
  font-size: 12px;
}
p:hover {
  font-size: 20px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<p>This is the text</p>
</body>
</html>

Also I have like this in a bootstrap blog page
    <h4><small>RECENT POSTS</small></h4>
      <hr>
      <h2>Officially Blogging</h2>
      <h5><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-time"></span> Post by John Doe, Sep 24, 2015.</h5>
      <h5><span class="label label-success">Lorem</span></h5><br>

Is there a way I could put a background image just for this block?

give the h4 a class (say bgimage)
[code]
<style type="text/css">
h4.bgimage {
  background: url(path/to/image.jpg) no-repeat;
}
</style>
...
<h4 class="bgimage">
...
</h4>
