Praise For…


A classic sibling debate sets the stage for this effective, child-led exploration of measurement methods. After Lia and Luís visit their family’s store to get their favorite Brazilian snacks, they wonder: is Luís’s one bag of tapioca biscuits “more” than Lia’s two chicken croquettes? In text sprinkled with Portuguese words (a glossary with a pronunciation guide is included at the end), the two children go back and forth, counting, comparing, and measuring: “She has two croquettes. Luís has only one bag of biscuits. Maybe Lia does have more.// Or maybe not... Luís has... 98, 99, 100 biscuits.” Eventually, Lia discovers who has more by weight and finds a way for each child to have an equal amount. Medeiros’s cheery, colorful digital illustrations capture the children’s frustration, concentration, and joy. Includes four additional adult-led activities to encourage children to think more about measurement and comparison.
