Children's LiteratureWant to know how much something weighs but don't have a scale? Want to know the time but don't have a clock (or cannot read one yet)? Then it is time to use your estimation skills! This wonderful book explores the wide-ranging ways that estimation is, or can be, used in everyday life. If you want to know how much something will hold, look at the size of the container. If your stomach growls, then you know it is time for dinner. Without using measuring tools you can use your reasoning skills to draw conclusions about the world around you. Weather forecasters and chefs, two occupations which are highlighted, use such skills all the time. A short fun-filled fact section (including tips on how to tell the age of a horse) appears at the end. Other highlights in the book include bright, cheerful pages, terrific multi-cultural photographs, a glossary, index and reference section. 2003, Compass Point Books, Ages 4 to 7.
