How Much Does a Ladybug Weigh?
by Alison Limentani
Did you know that one ladybug weighs about as much as 10 ants? Or that one swan weighs as much as 362,880 ladybugs? This is one of the many animal weight facts that young readers (and this adult) will learn from this great book! Counting backward (starting from 10 ants and going down to 1 swan) it compares the weight of different animals to help put it into perspective for readers.
Alison Limentani has done an excellent job at making the subject of weight exciting and engaging! This is a great book to help introduce the concept to young learners. This can easily be a read aloud to a young class, with its large fonts and illustrations standing out nicely against the solid, brightly colored backgrounds.
