February 2024 Book of the Month

With her lively child-like illustrations and a bouncy enthusiastic narrator, Nicola Kent really brings important first concepts maths to life for young readers, while telling them just how amazing their bodies are!

Ingeniously relating units of measurement to everyday objects and to her own body, the narrator encourages the reader to be as astounded and excited as she is by being as ‘tall as ten tin cans’ or that by unravelling her veins she could stretch them ‘three times around the world’.

She is surrounded by a lovely inclusive bunch of friends who are participating and assisting in her fun measuring experiments. She loves the fact that she is made of ‘millions of numbers’ and yet ‘there is only one me!’

A brilliant bonus at the back of the book is an equally ingenious, sturdy, height chart. This has the usual measuring tape along one side, but tins in the middle and animals beside them so you can compare them to your own height and to each other. Emperor penguins are much larger than I imagined! You are encouraged to find other things to measure yourself against too and I can see this provoking lots of excited activity.

A highly successful first venture into information books for this author and hopefully the first of many using this child friendly approach!
