Overview

Best-selling author Jerry Pallotta and illustrator Rob Bolster weigh in with their eighth yummy 32-page Hershey's math book--this time, using assorted Hershey's candies to explain weights and measures

How long is a foot? What is the metric system? What weighs more, a ton of feathers or a ton of Hershey's candy? Author and educator Jerry Pallotta answers these and lots of other questions as only he can--using Hershey's Kisses, Twizzlers candies, Hershey's chocolate bars, and more to teach weights and measurements. Rob Bolster's comical clowns demonstrate the concepts.

This is the eighth book in the series by Pallotta and Bolster, who have taught kids counting by fives, addition, subtraction, fractions, multiplication, percents, shapes, and patterns.

This is a great measurement and weight book that uses different Hershey¿s, Reese¿s, and Twizzlers products to compare different weights and measurements of everyday things. It covers metric, standard, time, and weight. This would be great to use in the classroom with elementary kids when discussing weight and measurement during math class. I rated this 5 out of 5 because it uses candy as its comparison to what it is measuring, and kids love candy. I also liked that it used both standard and metric system. It is something fun for the children to read, and they get to learn at the same time!

Jerry Pallotta is the author of Hershey¿s Milk Chocolate Weights and Measuring. Pallotta is known mainly for his alphabet books. His first book, The Ocean Alphabet Book, was inspired by the live he lived as a young teenager in Scituate, Massachusetts. Pallotta is an award winner. He visits various elementary schools across the nation to encourage children to write their own books. The book Hershey¿s Milk Chocolate Weights and Measuring begins by introducing different words that people use when talking about measurement. Then it shows images of different feet such as a mouse¿s foot or a baby¿s foot. The book compares one inch to a piece of candy and explains that twelve pieces of candy is equal to one foot. Throughout the book there are different length comparisons with candy. I like that the book compares a certain kind of candy to a length or weight measurement. These comparisons can be used as a reward in the classroom.
