Measurement made simple: That's what children get from this bright book of stories and pictures on the concepts behind customary and metric systems. In addition to giving today's kids the skills to answer the questions the title asks, this book also makes the history of measurement interesting (how did Egyptians use their fingers, hands, and arms for measuring?).
