    About Author

    1. As a child, I was filled with a sense of awe as I contemplated the universe The huge numbers of stars and their sizes and distances never failed to amaze me With binoculars and magnifying glass, I also focused on closer subjects like birds, flowers, frogs and bugs.But science and math weren t my only fascinations I also loved bicycles, baseball, boats and ice cream Years later, on a clear spring night, I looked up at the sky and a shower of memories descended I suddenly remembered my childhood awe at the wonders of space.That night I was inspired to write my first book, How Much Is a Million Now, almost 50 books later, I spend much of my time finding unusual, whimsical ways to make math and science come alive for kids and teachers, both through my writing, and through speaking at schools and conferences I also write science articles for magazines, especially Smithsonian, and to do the research I ve made exciting trips to some of the remote corners of several continents I ve been to Africa to study hippos, to South America to visit an indigenous tribe living in the rain forest, and to far northern Scotland to track illegal egg collectors But I still love the land outside my door in northern California, and the same distant stars that inspired me years ago from davidschwartz about_da

    1. Based on the true story of Gustaf Hakensson, who in 1951 completed the over 1000 mile Tour of Sweden as an unofficial competitor, Supergrandpa has a defying the odds drama and excitement that readers and listeners should enjoy.The book s watercolor I think illustrations have something of a faded, impressionistic quality that give it an old fashioned, slightly rustic feel that seems to fit the title character.To me, this is a great book for grandparents lucky enough to be physically active to sha [...]


    2. Although it may not seem like it, this book is perfect for basing a mathematics lesson off of it Based of of Supergrandpa s speed Supergrandpa is based on the true story of 66 year old bicycle racer, Gustav Hakansson He went 1000 miles in a race in which he was not allowed to enter because of his age He is recognized as a hero after finishing first in the race.How did he do it You will have to read to find out


    3. Based on the true story of bicycle racer, 66 year old Gustav Hakansson, Supergrandpa, is another story about the extraordinary things ordinary people can do once they set their mind to something.Gustav pedaled 1000 miles in a race in which he was not allowed to enter because of his age Although it took him a few extra days and he pedaled during the night instead of when the other competitors were racing, he finished first and became a local hero.


    4. This fictionalized account of Gustaf Hakansson s famous bike ride in Sweden inspires readers Schwartz took liberty with the true life story and turned it into a tortoise and the hare tale.


    5. A great book for children of all ages The tortoise and the hare story retold from the view of a bicycle seat Except this is based on a true story.


    6. Bjorn read this to me and it is quite an inspiring and moving little story of an old man who decides to race his bicycle with the pros and wins the heart of Sweden in the process.
