Super Heroes teach the metric system in an unforgettable format. Grades 4 and up.
Charlie – Grade 4
I like the book because it taught me the metrics. Before I read the book I had no idea what metrics were. The way she wrote the story was amazing. The rhyme and rhythm made me listen even more. I also loved how she had the idea of the family and the family crest.
Mason- Grade 4
I thought that the Metric Family helped me learn the metric system by breaking it down to the things that I already know by heart. I think if I read a different book about the metric system it would be a lot harder to understand. This book is based on simple,easy stuff.
Ryan – Grade 4
I love this book for kids because most kids only know a little bit of the metric system. It teaches kids base 10 with metric fun Your kid will fly through it in no time.
Julia – Grade 4
The reason I like this book is because I think the way she wrote it in rhyme helps me keep it in my head. It doesn’t just list facts. It actually has a story.
Kathryn – Grade 4
I love the book because it is catchy and easy to learn through rhyme. I like that it is fun and not all facts . Overall I think its a very clever children’s book.
Liv -Grade 4
Before I read this book I didn’t understand metrics and it was very confusing and discouraging. But now that I’ve read this book I totally understand metrics. I would suggest this book to any child who doesn’t understand metrics.

The Morphing Metric Family is a wonderful resource that can be used throughout an investigation of measurement. Through whimsical characters that help the reader understand equivalent measurements and brilliant illustrations, the reader is captivated and engaged in learning. Great for the classroom or as an “at-home” resource. This is a must have book.
