Abstract:

In rhyming text, a sentence or two per page, cute cartoon animals explore the world of measuring, both in the English system and the Metric system. This book would not be useful for serious instruction; it is a nice introduction for preschoolers to the concept of measurement. Sometimes the need to accomplish a rhyme seems to get in the way of the clearest possible presentation of the material: "One inch looks like this and it's easy to miss, because of its very small size. But it shows us its might when it helps tell the height of the trees that reach up to the skies." Young students are generally taught to choose the most appropriate unit of measure for the object and would not be instructed to measure the lofty evergreens shown in inches! In general the jaunty, fun nature of text and illustrations makes up for the occasional shortfalls, making this book a satisfactory choice for collections serving preschoolers --
