How Many Guinea Pigs Can Fit on a Plane? by Laura Overdeck - ADVISABLE

Overdeck, Laura  How Many Guinea Pigs Can Fit on a Plane?, 130 pages.  Feiwel and Friends, 2017.  $17.99  Content: G.  

This book answers all sorts of interesting and fun questions regarding numbers.  Each page spread has a question from a kid, such as: “How many balloons would it take to carry me into the air?” or “How many ladders would it take to get to the moon?”  Then the author proceeds to answer the question using math equations and sometimes the author takes the question to the next level or breaks it down further.  

This book is visually appealing with great graphics and different color fonts.  The format is easy to skip from the question to the answer if you don’t want the play-by-play of the math.  The math equations are a bit complicated and for upper elementary level kids, but lower elementary kids will enjoy the answers and fun facts.  

EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.  EL – ADVISABLE. Reviewer, C. Peterson.
