Measuring Penny is the sixth book in our Great Expectations series!Lisa's creative approach to measuring inspired us to create lots of activities and projects: we've collected a recipe for doggie biscuits, tips from a blind scientist, tactile graphing and measuring toolsand much more!

Lisa has an important homework assignment — to measure something in several different ways. She has to use standard units like inches and nonstandard units like paper clips to find out height, width, length, weight, volume, temperature, and time. Lisa decides to measure her dog, Penny, and finds out:
    Penny's nose = 1 inch long
    Penny's tail = 1 dog biscuit long
    Penny's paw print = 3 centimeters wide
And that's only the beginning! Lisa learns a lot about measuring — and about her dog — and even has fun doing it! This clear and engaging concept book, delivered with a sense of humor, is certain to win over the most reluctant mathematician. Each book includes the print/braille book and 50 Snap Cubes to get you started with your own creative measuring projects!
