Synopsis

How Tall Was Milton? by Lawrence F. Lowery

In this funny fairy tale, it takes a village to figure out the height of Milton the friendly giant. The townspeople's attempts to gauge just how big he is will entertain young readers as they learn the importance of standard units of measurement. ow 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
