This book first illustrates what large numbers look like. For example, the author shows that one million is written: “1,000,000—one followed by six zeroes.” The author then explores how a large number of everyday items look, whether readers can count to each number, how long that would take and what value the number has in dollars. Adler studies millions, billions and trillions. He also introduces even bigger numbers to his readers. Have you ever seen a quintillion? Want to?
Millions, Billions and Trillions is an excellent way to inspire a love of mathematics in young children. Bright colors and fun, full-page illustrations prevent the book from being too academic. Boost your family’s number recognition skills and pick up interesting trivia about everything from birthday parties to billionaire lifestyles.
You might not believe us but the author of this book also writes the Cam Jansen series! Who would guess?
