Book Description

When a hot-tempered dragon seizes the local bridge, the people of Berryville are cut off from their supply of beloved strawberries until they can correctly answer three questions related to weight. The grownups of the town are stumped, but one very smart little girl saves the day with some facts she learned in school.  

From the Trade Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect For Teaching The Concept Of Weight! 8 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
With a great ending this book will help to teach kids about weight and entertain them too. Vivid, colorful illustrations and a well-paced story make this a must for primary elementary classrooms! Another great Step into Reading PLUS MATH!

4.0 out of 5 stars We love this book 13 Aug. 2008
By Jen B - Published on
The reason I didn't give this book five stars, is because I feel that if a child is old enough to read, the "math" would be too simplistic. For my four year old, it was great. I found it a clever way to introduce the concept of size and weight in an engaging story, (a bigger thing can be lighter, more can be lighter than less, etc). It is a cute book and worth having, but I just don't get, what I perceive to be, a mismatch of ability levels presented. By the time my child is reading, I'd hope for more difficult subject matter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Teaches weight and measure concepts in a fun way. 1 Aug. 2009
By R. Day - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The "scales" is a play on words. These are weight scales.
In this story they are used to teach about weights
My 4 year old learned a lot from the weighing contest.
Two items don't necessarily weigh more than one.
Large size doesn't mean it's heavier.
In the end the dragon (who had owned the scales but apparently never used them before this contest) learns the lessons.
Nice story and interesting lesson for young ones.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reader 2 Nov. 2012
By Carme Sevenster - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Perfect self reader. The story line is engaging, young children love it. The images are beautifully done with lots of color and detail. The font is big enough and the story is not too long. This book also addresses a few mistakes kids, in general, sometimes make, for example: which weighs more a big bag of cotton or a tiny bag of gold. I love this series of books. Highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars 7 yr old Liked it 4 Oct. 2011
By Got-It-Online - Published on
My daughter is 7 yrs old and just starting 2nd grade. At first she grumbled about reading this book but as it progressed she really like it and she wanted to go back and read a few parts. I thought it was cute and it has a nice Math element. The AR test on this book has 10 questions but my daughter was a little bummed that it was only worth .5 points.
