About This BookHow long is a foot? What is the metric system? What weighs more, a ton of feathers or a ton of Hershey's candy? Author and educator Jerry Pallotta answers these and lots of other questions as only he can -- using Hershey's Kisses, Twizzlers, Hershey's chocolate bars, and other yummy snacks to teach weights and measurements. Rob Bolster's comical clowns demonstrate the concepts.
This is the eighth book in the series by Pallotta and Bolster, who have taught kids counting by fives, addition, subtraction, fractions, multiplication, percentages, and shapes and patterns.
