National Children's Book Week: Book 5
Inch by Inch by Leo Lionni
Materials: a ruler, or create your own ruler using inch worms (I used Word Clip Art to create the one below. Simply insert the picture of the inch word into a new document, and copy and paste it across the paper. Print and cut it out)
Description: Have your toddler count the worms on the ruler or the number on a real ruler.
Help your toddler use the ruler to see how long items around your house are. They can count the worms. This pencil is 4 1/2 worms long.
This book is 5 worms long!
