In this wacky look at weight, Brian P. Cleary and Brian Gable introduce essential measurement units???from grams to pounds to tons. The comical cats of the wildly popular Words Are CATegorical?? series show how to measure trucks, trains, ducks, cranes, and more. Peppy rhymes, goofy illustrations, and kid-friendly examples make light work of this heavy topic.
