(Holiday House, Jan. 15, 2014)
How long would it take to count to a billion without stopping? How many pizzas could a million dollars buy? Big numbers-- like millions, billions, and trillions-- are hard to visualize. In this book, the dynamic duo of David A. Adler and Edward Miller illustrate and explain these huge numbers in a lighthearted, easy-to-imagine way. Whether it's a trillion pieces of popcorn, a billion dollars, or even bigger numbers, the concrete examples in Millions, Billions, & Trillions, laid out in simple, kid-friendly language and bright, cartoony illustrations, will help young readers make sense of large values and develop a sense of scale. From the masterful team of David A. Adler-- a former math teacher-- and Edward Miller comes another great introduction to mathematical concepts for young readers. Don't miss their other collaborations, including Squares, Rectangles, and Other Quadrilaterals, Money Math, Place Value, and Let's Estimate!
