Now with new art by Katie Kath (illustrator of Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer), this easy-to-understand introduction teaches children how to quantify the things in their daily routines. They'll learn all about the tools they need to measure--rulers, scales, pencils, and cups--as well as the language to express what they find. Readers will soon have the answers to their questions--how far, how tall, and how small? Me and the Measure of Things joins the other repackages in Joan Sweeney's popular Me...series--Me on the Map, Me and My Place in Space, Me and My Amazing Body, Me and My Family Tree, Me Counting Time, and Me and My Senses. --from the publisher


The energetic narrator of Me Counting Time and Me on the Map is back, this time introducing young readers to the units of measure. What’s the difference between a cup and an ounce? What gets measured in bushels and when do you use a scale? Easy-to-understand text and playful corresponding illustrations teach children the differences between wet and dry measurements, weight, size, and length. And all information is conveyed in a unique kid’s-eye perspective, using everyday objects and situations. Me and the Measure of Things makes measurement fun–and comprehensible!--from the publisher
