If You Were an Inch or a Centimeter

by Marcie Aboff
Illustrated by Sarah Dillard

If you were an inch or a centimeter, you would be the height, width, or length of things. You could be a new snowfall, a TV set, or a short haircut. What else could you be if you were an inch or a centimeter?

"TWO STAR RATING! If You Were an Inch or a Centimeter is a book that I recommend highly for children in grades 6 and below. One of 12 in the Picture Window Books Math Fun series prepared with advice from Stuart Farm, M. Ed., this sturdy book contains a simple index, a glossary, and a references list. The facing-page illustrations in water color and gouache with large print are relevant and will instruct the reader about measurement. The text is factual and terse, and closes with an experiment in which a ball is tossed in order to generate random distances to be estimated and measured. Although aimed at preschoolers, the book can hold the adult reader’s interest as well." - Science Books & Films
