Up to My Knees! (Storytelling Math)

by Grace Lin (Author) Grace Lin (Illustrator)

Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

Caldecott Honor winner Grace Lin celebrates math for every kid, everywhere!

Mei explores measurement as she plants a sunflower seed and watches it grow. The plant starts off as tall as her toe, but soon it's up to her knees, then her waist, then her shoulders. How tall will it get?

Storytelling Math celebrates children using math in their daily adventures as they play, build, and discover the world around them. Joyful stories and hands-on activities make it easy for kids and their grown-ups to explore everyday math together. Developed in collaboration with math experts at STEM education nonprofit TERC, under a grant from the Heising-Simons Foundation.
