24 October 2017
As this classic story for children ages 2 to 6 years old begins, a little inchworm cleverly avoids getting eaten by a hungry robin. He tells the bird he’s very useful and can measure its tail. Fly along with the inchworm as he sizes up breathtaking birds-- that want to eat him for breakfast-- in inventive ways. Keep your eyes peeled to find out how he meets his biggest calculating challenge in a creative way. Ready to see how these math-friendly adventures are played out in this Caldecott award-winning book? Inch by Inch can be found right here on Amazon.
