Description

Our next stop as we Count Our Way Across the USA is to Maine where we can listen to the call of the loon, hike through the Eastern white pine forests, or enjoy a clambake at the beach while watching whales splash in the ocean. Fishing for Numbers is packed with enough Maine facts, lore, and history to keep readers fishing for hours. Readers will learn why Maine is known for their shipbuilders, how fast a puffin can fly, and which is the only domestic cat native to North America. There is even a recipe for a traditional baked bean supper. Cynthia Reynolds, author of L is for Lobster: A Maine Alphabet, is an eleventh-generation Maine native. She summers on Pleasant River Lake in Maine. The rest of the year she dreams of Maine from her home outside Ann Arbor. Jeannie Brett has illustrated several books including L is for Lobster: A Maine Alphabet. She lives in York, Maine.

Some people may want pieces of the block, so they use a scale to measure how much the pieces of cheese weigh. This helps them determine how much their pieces will cost. Markets in India sell fabric. Fabric is measured by length. Markets in China sell rice. Do you think they measure it by weight or by length? 32pp.
