I like this book because it presents information in a fun, relatable and vibrant way for the reader. The illustrations help to represent the information that is being expressed throughout the text of the book. For example, one of the concepts the book discusses is how much is an ounce. The book uses a Hershey’s chocolate bar to demonstrate how much an ounce is. I think this was a great idea to use different types of candy and Hershey products because they are relatable to children. What child does not love candy? The illustrations make the book more engaging by using vibrant colors and bolded text in various places throughout the book. The book provides a lot of information on weights and measures. For example, it says on one page “One thousand grams is a kilogram. One thousand kilograms is called a metric ton”. The book is also interactive. On the same page as the previous example, the last line of the page is “What weighs more, a ton or a metric ton? The answer is hidden on this page”. This engages the reader even more asking them to participate and look for the answer on the page. I think the main idea of this book is to provide the reader with information. ( )

This is a great measurement and weight book that uses different Hershey’s, Reese’s, and Twizzlers products to compare different weights and measurements of everyday things. It covers metric, standard, time, and weight. This would be great to use in the classroom with elementary kids when discussing weight and measurement during math class. I rated this 5 out of 5 because it uses candy as its comparison to what it is measuring, and kids love candy. I also liked that it used both standard and metric system. It is something fun for the children to read, and they get to learn at the same time! ( )

Jerry Pallotta is the author of Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Weights and Measuring. Pallotta is known mainly for his alphabet books. His first book, The Ocean Alphabet Book, was inspired by the live he lived as a young teenager in Scituate, Massachusetts. Pallotta is an award winner. He visits various elementary schools across the nation to encourage children to write their own books.
The book Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Weights and Measuring begins by introducing different words that people use when talking about measurement. Then it shows images of different feet such as a mouse’s foot or a baby’s foot. The book compares one inch to a piece of candy and explains that twelve pieces of candy is equal to one foot. Throughout the book there are different length comparisons with candy. I like that the book compares a certain kind of candy to a length or weight measurement. These comparisons can be used as a reward in the classroom. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439388775, Paperback)

Best-selling author Jerry Pallotta and illustrator Rob Bolster weigh in with their eighth yummy 32-page Hershey's math book--this time, using assorted Hershey's candies to explain weights and measures

How long is a foot? What is the metric system? What weighs more, a ton of feathers or a ton of Hershey's candy? Author and educator Jerry Pallotta answers these and lots of other questions as only he can--using Hershey's Kisses, Twizzlers candies, Hershey's chocolate bars, and more to teach weights and measurements. Rob Bolster's comical clowns demonstrate the concepts.

This is the eighth book in the series by Pallotta and Bolster, who have taught kids counting by fives, addition, subtraction, fractions, multiplication, percents, shapes, and patterns.
