Editorial Reviews

Review

Helen Nolan has written a fun text and Tracy Walker has created appealing illustrations? Students in grades 2, 3, and 4, though, will understand the concept and have fun with it as it is presented here. For kids who need more help exploring the concept of 1,000, there is a note to parents with further ideas.

Another exciting resource from Kids Can Press, How Much, How Many, How Far, How Heavy, How Long, How Tall is 1000?, deals with concepts of numeracy. This resource has answers to all of those great numerical questions that only kids could come up with.

About the Author

Helen Nolan is a former teacher who loves to help youngsters feel at home with numbers.

Format: Paperback
This is all very qualitative. We wanted a book with pictures that clearly showed 1,000 drawn objects, or clearly explained just how big/heavy/long/etc. they were. Instead we got this hand waving junk. For example, it asks the child if there might be 1000 objects. "What does 1000 look like?" That's your job to explain, not the reader's! Also, "1000 people sitting in rows will fill a small hockey arena." First of all, how about some specificity. "Small"?! That's not at all helpful in describing the size! And the accompanying picture shows 100 people in a stylized view of about 1/4 of a stadium, which means a child gets an impression that 400 is actually 1000. Not right!

Recommendation: don't buy.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My kids (4 and 7) really enjoy this book. It is difficult to demonstrate or model numbers much larger than about 50 to children. This book has an excellent series of examples and comparisons to help children think about the number 1000 and to develop their number sense. Some of the examples it gives are 1000 stacked dimes, 1000 minutes, 1000 freckles, 1000 cookies. It doesn't actually show that number of objects, but it explains how tall or long or heavy 1000 of a given item is. One of the key concepts to take away is that 1000 doesn't always look the same. 1000 of something small may still not look like much, but 1000 of something large is very large. This is more beneficial to kids as it encourages them to think flexibly about numbers, rather than always picturing 1000 pennies whenever they think about 1000.
