Heidi Fielder has successfully written and edited a multitude of books, including picture books and middle grade level. In the Know-Nonsense Guide to Measurements, Fielder explains the key concepts of measurement to young readers. Fielder covers the metric system and the international system of units, as well as the American system of inches, gallons and pounds. Youngsters will also learn about Epic Time Scales, Intensity, Wind-chill, and more. The author also includes charts at the back of the book for future reference. Fielder’s guide is easy enough to comprehend, and the illustrations, by Brendan Kearney, are full of humor. Panda bears, cows, Martians, characters with Picasso-like faces and more will garner a giggle or two from parents and young readers alike. The Know-Nonsense Guide to Measurements is a guide readers will return to time and time again.
