There are millions of things to measure . . . and almost as many ways to measure them!

Marvelosissimo the Mathematical Magician is back — and ready to explore the invention of length, weight, and volume measurements. After that, with another wave of his wand, the wizard introduces the world of metrics and makes it easy to understand the basic pattern of meters, liters, and grams. With Steven Kellogg's playful and delightfully detailed illustrations, measuring has never been such a blast!

A good introduction to measurements for kids. Not too complicated and not too simple. The pictures by Kellogg, as usual, are brilliant.

Great book to use during a math lesson when talking about measuring or converting units. The book starts off with saying there are millions and millions of things to measure. It goes through all the measurements you can think of inches, feet, and yards. It also helps children with knowing how many ounces are in a cup, and how many cups are in a pint, and so on and so on!

Millions to Measure is a measuriffic book that I am measuring to tell you about. I am reviewing it Measuria, a place where measuring is measical. Get it, magical measical?Oh, whatever!Let's get down to measuring how great this measuring book is!Whenever I give an excellent review on one of the parts of this book, give it 5 points. Whenever I give it a good review, give it 3 points. When I give it an OK review, give it 1 point.This book has magnificent hand-drawn and colored pencil drawings. One of the great illustrations is of Hercules The Huggable Hippo. It's a really funny picture to explain weight! Give this 5 points. I hope you're keeping track (I'm not!)Next part of this book is its excellent explanations. It helps you measure by showing the different ways people measured back in time and compared that to now. It even has a sidebar showing fluid ounces on one of the pages, and it helped me with my homework since I'm learning about capacity. I recommend this book to people who are learning about measuring,or who want to.
