Monday Math Literature Volume 42

If you missed last week's post about a great book for teaching factors and multiples, you can check it out here!

This is a great measurement book by David Adler who has written over 200 kids books.  I have written about some of my other favorite measurement books before but this is one is also a student favorite.  It is bright, colorful, fun and has a great monster theme.  The monsters are going to the opening of a new movie and work together to measure the area, perimeter and volume of the set, screen, popcorn box and more. High interest for kids and usable in grades 3-6. 

An entertaining read and a great way to squeeze more math into your day.

What are your favorite books for measurement concepts?


  1. I just pinned the monster book! I HAVE to get to measurement before the year ends:)

    1. Measurement always seems to get pushed to the end of the year!

  2. I will have to look for this book! Area and perimeter can be such a difficult concept for some kids, so this can only help!

    I have always loved the book How Big is a Foot? for explaining the need for a standard unit of measurement.
