A real gem! This delightful book explores all the myriad things that can be measured and the ways to measure them. Some are measurements of what you'd expect (like size and weight) and many are not (wetness, dryness, wobbliness, itchiness and other interesting qualities).
The lyrical writing is a joy to read aloud again and again. Best of all, the underlying message is a reminder not to get focused to intently on one thing—like measuring—at the expense of experiencing life to its fullest.
Written for elementary-age children, but also a great read-aloud book for younger children. Hardcover, 32 pages. Ages 6 and up.
