But both the science-curious and the science-phobic are in for a treat as the author of one of the wittiest math books around takes on a new topic. Ranging freely from DNA to jet-propelled squid to proof that it'¬?s best to prepare dragon tonic using the metric system, this smorgasbord of science topics makes a great classroom resource or gift for the budding scientist. By the time kids plow through all the quirky pictures and funny captions we'¬?re sure they'¬?ll agree that W is for Wow! 55,000 hardcover G is for Googol: A Math Alphabet Book in print.‚Ä¢ A Smithsonian Notable Books for Children 2001 ‚Ä¢ Educators, please visit our Resources section, above, for teaching guides and curricula .

About the Author

As a child, KIM DONER aspired to be a Ballerina-Veterinarian-Artist-- dancing at night, saving animals by day, and summering in Africa to draw wild animals from a treehouse. Today, she has made those dreams a reality-sharing her love of the arts through her award-winning children's books, rehabilitating wildlife, and planning a return to Africa with her husband. Kim lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
