10.7. They Go Together
Math and numbers are essential to the engineering and architectural principles of the seven Medieval wonders. Written language and words are what make it possible for us to read books about them today.

Combine the two and read a book that has a number word on the cover. The number must be written out, not a numeral, and it may be an ordinal number.

Examples: Seven Up (Stephanie Plum, #7) by Janet Evanovich Seventh Grave and No Body (Charley Davidson, #7) by Darynda Jones One Day by David Nicholls
REQUIRED: Include the cover in your post.

yes, since it's a number word, written out.

It doesn't matter what it's in - all you need is a number word on the cover of the book! So you're fine.

Trish (trishhartuk) | 2540 comments Would this work? Or would the fact that the "nine" is part of a longer word preclude it?
Ninefox Gambit (The Machineries of Empire #1) by Yoon Ha Lee

Sorry, but since "ninefox" is not a number, it won't work.

Righty ho. No worries - it was just on the off chance. There are other tasks I can fit it to.

This book qualifies according to what the task calls for, but I am not sure if it is a children's book. It doesn't say so when I look up the book on GR( first page), but it does say it is published by BBC Children's Books. I tried the AR finder, but not sure how it works.

The question is whether it has childrens or kids as a main page genre, which it doesn't now. So, as long as it doesn't have it listed as a main page genre when you post, no problems.

To use AR Bookfinder, you go to the site and put in title, author, or ISBN (I usually use ISBN). If they ask you what your role is (teacher, etc.), I usually just say parent. Then, if the book is listed on the site, you'll get the info.

It doesn't give me anything, but I was just wondering because of the publisher if I was able to use it. Otherwise, the main page did not say Children's from what I saw.

the publisher doesn't matter - only the genres listed on the main page.

Thank you, sometimes it takes a bit for the "duh" moment to kick in.

Would you consider the word "half" to fit this task?"


sorry, no. "half" is not a number.
