How Big is the Lion?, William Accorsi

It's fun, it's educational, it's interactive, it's a great gift–and it comes packaged with one of those everyday grown-up objects, the ruler, that is mysteriously, wonderfully compelling for children. How Big Is the Lion? is a first book of measuring that gives kids ages 4 and up the hands-on, measure-it-yourself thrill of using a ruler. How big is the lion? Use the ruler and find out.
