Measuring Penny

Product #:  0805065725
Description:  This oddball picture book will be an inspiration to any child embarked on a special homework assignment. In this instance, Lisa, an eight or nine year old, has been given a project "to measure something" in a number of ways. She selects her Boston terrier, Penny, as a subject, and the kinds and scope of her measurements are original to say the least: Penny's tail is "one dog biscuit long"; her ears are "one cotton swab long." We learn her relative size compared to other dog breeds: she's bigger than a pug, smaller than a cocker spaniel and about the same size as a Shetland sheepdog. We learn Penny's jumping range (about waist high by child measure), the amount of food and water she consumes, and the cost of her upkeep. Lisa's determination to cover all possible measurements unique to Penny is both informative and occasionally wittily and wildly inventive. Among other things, we get the subtle message that homework doesn't have to be drudgery. Parents' Choice Gold Award.
