    Great book for many lesson uses!

    This book is a classic that is wonderful to use with PreK-1st grade students. With this book, you can integrate literature into math, science and art lessons. I use this book for introducing non-standard units of measure with kindergarteners. I have also seen this used for science (animals, spring, etc) and art. Also a great addition to a Leo Leonni author study.

    A Great Little Story

    Lionni is not as blatantly in-your-face didactic as Aesop, but you could draw a few morals from this tale. One of them is, Humor spices up a children's story.

    Caldecott Honor Book: Inch by Inch

    In this simple book with lovely colors, we are introduced to a winning inchworm who is proud of his ability to measure things. This Caldecott Honor Book is written and illustrated by Leo Lionni. Leo grew up in Amsterdam¿s museum teaching himself to draw. He launched his career as an author and illustrator of books for children in 1959. One day the inchworm runs into a robin, and the robin is about to eat him. The worm replies, ¿ Don¿t eat me. I am an inchworm. I am useful. I measure things¿. So, the inchworm measures the robin¿s tail. Then he measures a flamingo¿s neck, a toucan¿s beak, the legs of a heron, and more. One morning the inchworm meets a nightingale. The nightingale says, ¿Measure my song.¿ The inchworm ponders as to how he can measure the song. As the nightingale begins to sing, the inchworm begins to measure inch by inch until he is out of sight. Lionni, Leo. Inch by Inch. HarperCollins, 1960. Reading level: Ages 3-8
