Summary: “10 ants weigh the same as 1 ladybug. 9 ladybugs weigh the same as 1 grasshopper.” And so this book goes, counting down from 10 to 1, with each page showing a progressively larger animal that weighs the same as that number of the animal from the preceding page. The final, largest animal is a swan, which weighs the same as 362,880 ladybugs. The last page shows all the animals with each one’s weight shown in ounces or pounds. 32 pages; ages 3-6.
Pros: A fun introduction to weight and relative sizes for the youngest readers. The simple, cute animal illustrations will make this an easy sell.
Cons: You’ll need to look elsewhere for an introduction to units of measure and other information about weight.
