Item Details

It's a long way to a million, right? Of course it is. But do you really know what a million looks like? If you'd like to see -- actually see, right now, with your own eyes -- what a million looks like, just open this book. Be prepared to learn some interesting things along the way. Like how many shoe boxes it would take to make a stack to Mount Everest. And be prepared to do some number wondering of your own. But, most of all, be prepared to be amazed. Because a million is a LOT of dots.

Everybody knows that a million is a LOT, but trying to imagine what a million looks like can be a bit mind-boggling. Much like Andrea Menotti 's How Many Jelly Beans? or David Schwartz's How Much Is a Million?, A Million Dots uses art to help kids visualize very large numbers. Author Andrew Clements presents readers with intriguing numerical factoids - for instance, did you know that the sooty tern can fly nonstop for 87,600 hours? - and illustrator Mike Reed uses lots and lots of tiny dots (one million dots in all) to create amusing, attention-grabbing illustrations for each bit of trivia.
