Twiga the giraffe introduces young readers to fascinating facts about giraffes and their relationship to other creatures—all by using math concepts such as measurements, graphs, shapes, word problems, and more.
This interactive picture book explores these spectacular animals through a STEM lens as everything from their speed and size to their intricate camouflage patterns (which act as internal air conditioning) and other body characteristics are featured. It’s an in-depth look at the animal kingdom’s most beloved gentle giants.
Praise for Giraffe Math:
"An interesting combination of information about giraffes and mathematical connections to this majestic animal. Twiga the giraffe guides readers through different giraffe facts starting with height and weight using U.S. measuring standards (feet, inches, pounds) and making connections between the tallest land animal and an average third grader along with other animals…. Giraffes are truly amazing creatures and the math connections in this work are interesting and well presented."—School Library Journal
