One man lifts a 50-pound girder. A forklift moves a 1-ton load. A wheelbarrow, a crane, a truck, a train all transport increasingly heavy objects as Taro Miura's deceptively simple book unfolds. Children will delight in the arresting images of workmen and their equipment. And as the weight increases so will their undertanding of how we measure it. A dramatic gatefold spread and a brief explanation of different systems of measurement complete the picture as this unique book makes learning about weight absolutely effortless.

Baker & Taylor
Explains the concept of weights and measures by depicting how different weights are lifted differently, from a man lifting a 50 lb. girder to a forklift lifting one ton, and how they are measured differently according to metric and English systems.

& Taylor

A construction site is the setting for a unique book that explains different systems of measurement and how we weigh things, as workmen and their equipment transport increasingly heavier objects.
