How tall will my sunflower grow? How long is Fido's leash? Learn how rulers and odometers can take you from inches to miles.
School Library Journal (April 1, 2011)
PreS-Gr 2-The large picture-book format and inviting color photographs make these clearly written titles welcome additions. In each book, the authors use common objects, giving readers recognizable points of reference. The focus of the measurements is U.S. units, although the metric system is mentioned and metric measurements are given in parentheses next to the U.S. figures. In Length and Distance, rulers, tape measures, yardsticks, and odometers are discussed. Liquids covers ounces, pints, quarts, and gallons and uses measuring cups and labeled containers. Time discusses days, weeks, months, and years as well as seconds, minutes, and hours. Weight uses a balance and various scales; however, readers may be a little confused since the text focuses on the U.S. measurements but the metric measurement is shown on the digital readout of several scales. Each book contains additional facts in the back matter. Solid purchases.-Stephanie Farnlacher, Trace Crossings Elementary School, Hoover, AL (c) Copyright 2011.
