tickmenotKansas CityGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Get the Facts!September 14, 2020tickmenotKansas CityGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5America has terrible weather, rainy most of the time. The people and animals are smaller than normal, and not healthy. Unbelievable, right?! But when we were a young country, much of the world believed it. A French man named Buffon was largely to blame. He wrote a popular book that convinced people of the false claims.
Thomas Jefferson was many things, including our third president. He also loved numbers and measuring items. When he heard of all the untrue rumors, he set out to prove Buffon wrong. He believed the size of a moose would convince the world what our country was really like. This book traces the predicaments that he faced while trying to get those dimensions, and persuade Buffon that he was incorrect.
This five-star book shows how easily untrue rumors can spread by false reporting. It is packed into an over-sized, hard-backed volume--which will be enjoyed by children in grades two through six.
Tickmenot was provided a copy of this book for review. Opinions are my own.
