Millions to Measure
By David M. Schwartz
Illustrator Steven Kellogg
Publisher Harper Collins Publishers

Marvelosissimo the Mathematical magician makes measuring a snap whether its distance, size, weight, or volume. He start begins with an historical tour from before people used standards of measurement. I this beginners guide to measurement children can learn to use rulers and yardsticks, compare the weight in pounds of a cat, a boy, a man, and a hippo, and measure volume from ounces to gallons. The metric system is also introduced including a four-page open out spread with a full-length meter stick image. Schwartz compares millimeters and centimeters, shows how to use liters to measure volume, meters to measure distance and size, and grams to measure weight. While this may seem horribly academic, it’s presented with a heavy dose of whimsy, which the illustrations augment delightfully.
