Product Overview

How tall is your best friend? How short is your little brother? How faraway is your school? Do you know how to measure distance, height, and length? Ancient Egyptians and Romans used their fingers, hands, arms, and legs as measuring tools. But you won't have to become a human ruler if you understand terms such as meter, mile, and yard. This third math concept book from the team of David A. Adler and Nancy Tobin uses simple text and bold, graphic art to explain the different systems of measuring, and helps you decide which ones are best for certain situations. Once you learn these basic concepts, you'll really measure up!

David A. Adler
Perhaps best-known for his picture-book biographies and his series of books about 10-year-old girl detective Cam Jansen, David A. Adler is the author of over 200 books for children. Before turning to writing as a full-time career, he worked as a math teacher. Adler was inspired by a conversation with one of his nephews to write his first children's book, A LITTLE AT A TIME, which was published in 1976.
