Mathematically speaking, D. Schwartz' books could be improved by including deeper content. Having said that, they are much more interesting and educational than the "count the pretty pictures" (overcrowded) category of children's books intended to aid the development of number sense.

My son and I got this from the library and kept checking it out and checking it out until I finally decided to just buy it. It makes measuring fun and the illustrations are awesome.

This book is soooo great when working with students on the customary and metric system. It gives them great visuals and I love that it covers capacity, length, and weight in both measurement systems.
