Teaching Children Mathematics, NCTM - Wayne Gable

"In this attractive picture book, making cookies is the context for providing basic information about different types of measurement. As part of a brief discussion about size before baking, the children use a ruler to measure the length and width of a cookie sheet. Other measurement concepts addressed include volume, temperature, weight, and distance. The two paragraphs devoted to each topic provide just a few pieces of information about the mathematical concepts. The book makes comparisons between the English and metric systems of measurement (amd gives examples of both) as well as between Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures. Some of the two-page spreads have "fun facts" that relate measurements to science concepts, such as states of matters and the speed of light. In addition to a glossary and index, the book includes a cookie recipe, a list of additional books about the topic, and a link to an engaging Web site. Although the illustrations and level of writing could appeal to elementary school children, the concepts are sometimes addressed in an abstract way, possibly making the book a bit challenging for young readers. Teachers and students may find the book useful as a beginning reference to measurement." - Teaching Children Mathematics, NCTM

NSTA Recommends - David Gillam

"Science Measurements: How Heavy? How Long? How Hot? introduces students to the measurement tools that are used in science investigations. Children are shown using tools to measure such things as volume, length, and distance. The way the tools are explained helps students choose the right tool for the task they want to accomplish. There are also explanations of the difference between English and metric measurements. This book represents a great way to introduce and support process skills and to make cross-curricular connections between science and mathematics." - NSTA Recommends
