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?

Once you learn these basic concepts, you'll really measure up!

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.
