Publisher Description

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 used to measure-rulers, scales, pencils, and cups-as well as the language to express what they find. Readers will soon have the answers to questions like 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 Family Tree, Me and My Amazing Body, Me Counting Time, and Me and My Senses.
