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."
