## Activity Summary

Use this storybook guide with the book “Lia & Luís: Who Has More?”
Many public libraries have this book.  This is a Mathical Award winner book.

Brother and sister go to the family store to get a snack, biscuits for Luís and croquettes for Lia. Luís brags that he has more: His bag is taller, wider, and deeper than Lia’s. But Lia points out that she has two croquettes and Luís has only one bag, so she has more. Luís counters that he has 100 biscuits and Lia has only two croquettes, so he has more. But Lia figures out another way to show that she has more. What is it? At the end, they figure out a way to share equally. Yum!

#### Words to Learn

The math in this book is about comparing and measuring. Your child can learn that:

• There are different ways to compare objects.
• They can compare by volume (capacity), number, and weight.
• Different methods of comparison produce different results.
• Objects can be more when measured one way but at the same time can be less when measured another way. For example, a brick can weigh more than a balloon but have less volume than the balloon.
• TALK ABOUT WHO HAS MORE
“Lia has two croquettes and Luís has only one bag of biscuits. Does Lia really have more than Luís?”
