-- This fascinating book takes young readers on a trip to a science lab where they will learn about the metric system. Simple text shows ways of measuring length (meters and centimeters), temperature (Celsius), and weight (grams and kilograms). Comparisons between key metric measurements and similar U.S. customary measurements, such as yards, inches, and Fahrenheit, help children understand the two systems.

Hug a Drummer Day
- That's when we want ordinary, every day people, to pour out their love for the drummers in their life. Or maybe even a complete stranger, who happens to be a drummer. Stuck up the back of a stage, working harder than anyone else in the band, the drummer is often heard but not seen. They need your love.

National Face Your Fears Day
- to help regular people confront and overcome the fears that hold them back. The purpose of this event is to encourage people to discover more about themselves, their fears and what they can do about them.

Powers of Ten Day
- all about celebrating the potential in adjusting perspective with scale, viewed from the beautiful natural order of math and science.

World Homeless Day
- to draw attention to homeless people's needs locally and provide opportunities for the community to get involved in responding to homelessness, while taking advantage of the stage an "international day" provides.

National Cake Decorating Day
- Have you ever tried your hand at cake decorating? Today is the day to take a class and whip up some butter cream frosting so you can decorate your own edible masterpiece.

National SHIFT10 Day
- a national movement to encourage shoppers to shift 10% of their spending to local businesses in communities across the United States. Shifting 10% of spending to local businesses over big-box stores makes an impact in communities across the United States.
