Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
A large format hardbound book cover houses a small book with two sliding rulers. These rulers run along the top and right side of the cover. The text on the left introduces the animal characters on the right page. They are shown over a grid. The margins are lined with colorful symbols like leaves or flowers that represent each one of the squares of the grid. The reader is instructed to measure each of the animals. The young reader can concentrate on the symbols instead of the squares of the grid as they practice their measurement skills. Each page includes three or four questions. The sliding rulers make all of this hard work seem like a game. 2000, Little Simon, Ages 2 to 5, $10.95. Reviewer: Kristin Harris—Children's Literature
