The energetic narrator of "Me Counting Time" and "Me on the Map" is back, this time introducing young readers to the units of measure. What's the difference between a cup and an ounce? What gets measured in bushels and when do you use a scale? Easy-to-understand text and playful corresponding illustrations teach children the differences between wet and dry measurements, weight, size, and length. And all information is conveyed in a unique kid s-eye perspective, using everyday objects and situations. "Me and the Measure of Things" makes measurement fun and comprehensible
