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.
