How many pints in a quart? How many feet in a mile? If someone had 2,000 pounds of gummy bears, would that be enough for every kid in Morganton?
No, this isn’t a math quiz, but it is the subject of Katie Kath’s newest illustrated book, “Me and the Measure of Things,” written by Joan Sweeny, which will be launched on Saturday, Aug. 24, at Adventure Bound Books during its regular Saturday Story Time at 11:30 a.m.
Kath, the artist, will be reading her book, conducting signings and performing a draw-along during the event. Snacks and additional free goodies will be available on a ﬁrst-come, ﬁrst-served basis.
To reserve a seat and a signed copy of the book, visit eventbrite.com and search for “Katie Kath Book Launch.” Or, call Adventure Bound Books at 828-475-6955. Tickets for story time, including a book, are $15. Tickets for story time only are free, and limited quantities of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
A colorfully-illustrated book about weights and measures, “Me and the Measure of Things” introduces to kids everything they need to know about how many, how much and how far. It’s the perfect back-to-school gift for kids, teachers or parents.
Kath is a native of Morganton and the illustrator of 18 picture and middle-grade books, including “Come Over to My House,” written by Dr. Seuss, and “Bob Books: Animal Stories,” a Scholastic early reader series by Lynn Maslen Kertell. Her next book, “Home Base: A Mother-Daughter Story,” written by Nikki Tate, is set to hit shelves in 2020.
