In this funny fairy tale, it takes a village to figure out the height of Milton the friendly giant.

How Tall Was Milton? even accounts for the real-life origin of such silly-sounding units as feet. How Tall Was Milton? is part of the I Wonder Why book series, written to ignite the curiosity of children in grades K–6 while encouraging them to become avid readers. These books explore the marvels of measurement, animals, plants, and other phenomena related to science and nature. Included in each edition is a Parent/Teacher Handbook with coordinating activities. The I Wonder Why series is written by an award-winning science educator and published by NSTA Kids, a division of NSTA Press.

About the Author:

Lawrence Lowery taught in the Oakland, CA, public schools before becoming a professor of science education at the University of California, Berkeley. He has more than 40 years’ experience creating science activities and programs, developing curricula, and writing articles and books, including the NSTA Press publication The Everyday Science Sourcebook and the I Wonder Why series.

Review:

At each stage the book would provide an excellent starter to encourage investigation and exploration. In addition to the story the book also includes useful notes for teachers that give a mathematical context to the story and provide a useful selection of ideas that can be used in the classroom. Being based in a fantasy land, the story itself is pretty universal and there are no unfamiliar cultural references. Overall this book is a good resource for teachers and it is a book that children will enjoy reading independently. It is firmly grounded in scientific and mathematical concepts and should encourage observation and exploration by pupils. --Primary Science January/February 2014
