Looking for books that help teach your child about measurement?  Here are my favorite picks!  See if you can check some of these out at your local library.  Iif your local branch doesn’t have a copy, ask the librarian to request it from another branch – they can usually do that for you.  But sometimes they don’t have a copy at all and you may have to purchase one if you really really want it that badly.  This is my list of books that help teach measurement skills – to preschool and elementary -aged children.  Laynie’s favorites are starred (just for the fun of it).
