Measuring Pennyby Loreen Leedy
Synopses & Reviews
Lisa has an important homework assignment--to measure something in several different ways. She has to use standard units like inches and nonstandard units like paper clips to find out height, width, length, weight, volume, temperature, and time. Lisa decides to measure her dog, Penny, and finds out ...
Penny's nose = 1 inch long
Penny's tail = 1 dog biscuit long
Penny's paw print = 3 centimeters wide
... and that's only the beginning! Lisa learns a lot about her dog and about measuring, and even has fun doing it.
This clear and engaging concept book, delivered with a sense of humor, is certain to win over the most reluctant mathematician.
Lisa's homework assignment is to measure something. The fun begins when she decides to measure her dog, Penny.
