"Geared toward mid-elementary students, this series is comprised of seven unique books, each with a focus on a simple measurement concept, what it means, and how it relates to life. All books explore the tools and units we use to measure while showing meaningful and relevant examples. Each title contains vivid photographs, charts, and diagrams with captions, explanations, and examples. Questions are posed throughout the books to entice young learners to "stop and think" or continue reading for more information. Each informative book includes a "Fun Facts" section along with a "Find Out More" page where additional books and websites are recommended. A "Measurement Exploration Activity" helps readers to put what they have learned into practice by completing a simple experiment. This mathematics and science series would make an excellent addition to any classroom library. Glossary. Table of Contents. Index. –Laura Eisenberg Robinson, Classroom Teacher and Big6 Project Manager, Seattle, Washington Library Media Connection March/April 2011" - Library Media Connection

Booklist - Daniel Kraus

"This entry in the Measuring and Comparing series begins traditionally. "The height of something is how tall it is," writes Parker. He goes on to explain why skyscrapers make sense for cities and how things are measured. Then it gets fun: "Compared to a younger brother or sister, you might be tall. But how tall is tall?" So begins a series of spreads where each object is multiplied to equal the height of the next object. After an explanation that a two-story house is about 24 and one-half feet, we are treated to a graphic of six children stacked next to a single house. "What is taller than a house?" asks the impending page-turn. Well, it takes six houses to equal an electrical tower; two towers to equal a wind turbine; one and one-half turbines to equal the London Eye Ferris wheel—all the way up to Dubai’s top skyscraper: "It would take you and about 704 of your friends . . . to reach the top of Burj Khalifa!" Each step has a bit of info about the new object, the photos are uniformly bright, and the back matter is satisfactory.— Daniel Kraus Booklist April 1, 2011" - Booklist
