How Big Is the Lion? My First Book of Measuring

William Accorsi, Workman, $14.95 (22p) ISBN 978-0-7611-5540-9
Using a six-inch wooden ruler attached to this board book by a red ribbon, readers can measure collaged objects made from felt and other sewing-box materials ("Can you measure the pink peacock?/ Is he taller than the croc?"). The animals offer helpful tips in speech bubbles: "To find the length of the mouse, measure the purple line," offers a dog standing on a gingham border. The gentle visuals and encouraging tone should keep kids' attention. Also includes a foldout growth chart. Ages 4–up. (Nov.)
