You might t like numbers when you have to do your maths homework, but it would be hard to live without them. Imagine how difficult life would be if you couldn't count things or be precise about time, distance or price. You wouldn't kw how old you are, or how long you have to wait until it's the holiday. We couldn't build anything accurately, we'd have computers and you couldn't even go shopping. You Wouldn't Want to Live Without Numbers! is part of a brand-new science and techlogy strand within the internationally acclaimed You Wouldn't Want to Be series. The clear, engaging text and humorous illustrations bring the subject to life and stimulate young readers' curiosity about the world around them.
