The best way to learn about measuring is to try doing it. But books are a useful way to introduce the concept and practise the language of measuring.
by Pam Adams
This book doesn't just talk about measuring - it encourages children to do it. Securely attached to the spine is a cord on which are ten beads, identical in size but varied in colour. Readers are encouraged to use the beads to measure the size of the pictures on the pages. There is no story - each spread features a different measuring activity to introduce a range of measuring words including tall, wide, high and long. The last two spreads use measuring to help decide which vehicles will fit in a tunnel and matching objects to the appropriate size box.
