Product Details


Humor ranges from whimsical (the observation that “time can be measured in colors” accompanies a changing lineup of deciduous leaves) to silly (a Saint Bernard’s owner is about to step into a one-pound “surprise gift”). Wry commentary adds to the fun while backmatter supplements all facts.
—Kirkus Reviews

Doneiger uses a combination of science, math, and humor to explore an often disparate collection of topics. The photography incorporates numerical facts that could be a jumping-off point to studying and practicing math. An accompanying section, “Life-Size Facts for the Very Curious,” provides more detailed information. Libraries with elementary students hungry for fact-based reading or looking for real-life math connections could use this book as an introductory text. Recommended.
