Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 08/25/2023 Gr 2–5—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. This title could be useful as an introduction to a whole host of math units as well as to provide a model for gathering information on other animals. Back matter contains a metric converter along with other giraffe facts. VERDICT Giraffes are truly amazing creatures and the math connections in this work are interesting and well presented.—John Scott - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
