Inch by Inch by Leo Lionni–Virtual Book Club for Kids

Leo Lionni is a favorite author of authors.  We don’t own a lot of his books, but the ones that we do own are read over and over and over again. 



We decided to check out a new book this month, and stumbled upon Inch by Inch.  I loved it immediately and the boys enjoyed it too!

We decided to see how many things we could find around the house that were 1in long.  I made these cute little Inchworm Rulers to help us out.  All 3 boys got a ruler, and then we set out to find our inch things.

Baloo found a pumpkin counter…

Royal had to try a few lego blocks before finding one that was just the right size.

And we kept going!

Once we filled up one ruler we decided to stop.  10 things was enough!  The boys continued to go around measuring things with their rulers though.


Would you like your own Inchworm Rulers?  You can get them here!
