How Long or How Wide? A Measuring Guide
(Math is CATegorical series)

by Brian Cleary
illustrated by Brian Gable

The Math is CATegorical duo is back in another kid-friendly math book, this time focusing on length. There isn't a storyline in this book; instead, rhyming text, clever examples, and zany cats compare metric and American units of length and show the tools used to make the measurements (rulers, meter sticks...) 

We think it's a fun title to use when teaching measurement lessons.

School Library Journal summed up this book as: "Colorful cartoon-like cats, mice, and other animals present the measurements, using examples such as a desk, door, headboard, and dime." 

Interest Levels:    Interest Level:  Gr. 2-6              Lexile Measure: 730
