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!

This book is all about the use of measurements in a little girls life. She tells of how much she weighs,how tall she is, and every other way to use measurements in her life. Great to use during a lesson on measurements to show children how they can use measurements in real life.
