9780440417569: Me and the Measure of Things

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!

About the Author:

This is Joan Sweeney and Annette Cable’s sixth collaboration in the Me series.

From School Library Journal:

Grades 1-3--In an unusually thorough fashion for this audience, Sweeney defines the various units of measurement. A young girl prepares breakfast using teaspoons, tablespoons, cups, and liquid measurements such as pints and quarts. Each unit is defined in relation to the other and Cable's detailed drawings serve as visual references. The crayon illustrations include both pictorial and numeric references. From the "1 quart (32 ounces)" label on a milk carton to the "2,000 pounds=1 ton" note next to a 1-ton bag of gummy bears, the pictures effectively reinforce the concepts presented. That said, the artist's childlike illustrations are not particularly attractive and the young narrator's disproportionately large eyes are a bit disturbing. The text itself is written clearly and in a conversational manner. However, the number of concepts introduced may be a little overwhelming for children to process in a single read.
