9780060289195: Bigger, Better, Best! (MathStart 2)

Jenny and Jeff are driving their little sister, Jill, crazy, and now that the family is moving into their new house it's worse than ever. Who'll have the bigger window? Who'll have the bigger bedroom? How can they measure the space so that they'll know for sure?

Jenny and Jeff must calculate area to settle their debate. This simple geometry concept will prove once and for all whose room is bigger -- but maybe Jill can show her squabbling siblings that bigger isn't always better!

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Jeff and Jenny are always fighting about who has something bigger or better, while Jill just ignores them. When the family moves to a bigger house with a separate room for each child, the two start arguing about whose room and windows are bigger. Mom then has them measure the windows with sheets of paper and the floor with newspaper. Ignoring her older siblings, Jill declares her room is best since it is farthest from the other two and near the cat's nook. This realistic story involves sibling rivalry with a resourceful solution to a common problem. It carefully incorporates math without being overwhelming. The colorful and humorous illustrations add to the story, which comes to a satisfying ending with a slight twist. Follow-up activities and a reading list are included.
