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.

Created by the folk artist William Accorsi, author of 10 Button Book and 10 Color Book , together with 368,000 copies in print, How Big Is the Lion? is filled with catchy rhymes that guide children to use the ruler and measure. Can you measure the pink peacock? Is he taller than the croc? The original illustrations are made from colorful shapes of felt, buttons, and pieces of lace and string, and with dotted lines serving as guides for where to measure. Measurements can be made in either inches or centimeters; an answer key is included.

Plus, in addition to the adorable wooden ruler, which is nestled in the cover of the book and attached to the cover by a ribbon, this book comes with a five-foot growth chart featuring art not included in book: Measure this book or measure your shoe. Then measure yourself: How tall are you?
