Jefferson Measures a Moose

We rated this book:


What I think about this book (Jefferson Measures A Moose by Mara Rockliff, illustrated by S.D. Schindler Thomas)— It’s a very moosey book! And it has learning in it. In the end, I really liked how they have questions with answers so you don’t need a grownup to know if you got it right. Thomas Jefferson used numbers to show the Frenchman that he was wrong. The Frenchman hadn’t even seen an American moose! He said nothing was that big. But Jefferson used numbers and proved that was not true and he hadn’t even seen America or measured it. That was so amazing! And there’s a squirrel in the book. That was cool. Jefferson loved asking questions about numbers and figuring the answer. Jefferson loved numbers and so do I. Other kids who like numbers or Thomas Jefferson will probably like this book too. I give it all the stars. He used numbers to prove his point about America to the foolish Frenchman who had never even seen America. It’s a great book about numbers and a little bit of history too.
