Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The concept of measurement is often a difficult one for small children to grasp, but one necessary for life and learning. This very short book provides an excellent introduction for young children. The first section notes a need for measuring and shows the kinds of things that can go wrong if things are improperly measured (popcorn overflows out of the bowl). Different types of measurements including weight, height, distance, temperature, time, volume and speed are illustrated and discussed. Easily understandable connections are made. "Cookies made with a teaspoon of salt tasted good. Cookies made with a tablespoon of salt taste bad." Photographs are colorful, very illustrative and peppered with small children's faces. Included are a table of contents, glossary, index, suggestions for further reading and some fun facts. 2003, Compass Point,
— Sharon Oliver
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-These offerings have age-appropriate vocabulary and align with national curriculum standards in math. Guess explores the concept of estimation and making approximations. The second title explains why we need to know the time and introduces different methods and devices used to determine the hour, but offers no instruction on reading a clock. The third book shows the importance of measuring and measuring correctly. Colorful photographs of children in real situations help present the concepts in an attractive manner. Appropriate guided reading levels and total word counts are noted. Educators may find these useful for instruction.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
