Storytime perfection.

This is such a unique, interesting and fun book I love all the numbers, the way he puts into perspective the massiveness of the universe and our planet Each spread is filled with life and movement and wonder The random facts are fun, and then he brings it back to the reader at the end The author s note, where he explains how they arrive at estimates and the challenges that arise when trying to calculate such large numbers was also well done and interesting And I love the anatomy of that billion [...]

I just love a picture book celebrating the wonder of this universe and our planet Glowing illustrations.

Seth Fishman makes number sense and estimating so much fun with this terrific picture book He begins with the sun, explaining that it s just one star among maybe 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars And he even helps readers know how to say this crazy number, putting the words a hundred billion trillion down in the corner As he tours the universe and our world, looking at different huge numbers 10 quadrillion ants may equal 7.5 billion humans in weight OMG and, 420 million kids or dogs lined up [...]

The whole world is filled with big, enormous, gigantic, humongous, incredible numbers What a ton of fun The playful art does a pretty good job of illustrating what the text is getting at, considering it s impossible to actually illustrate all three trillion trees, for example And a neat choice to print the numeral within the text 2,500,000 and the name for it two million five hundred thousand at the bottom of the page.

The best thing about my husband having grandchildren is that with two visiting later this monthI can embibe in buying and reading children s books to them

A funny and informative book about very large numbers.

So many numbers I love how the giant numbers are written out so we know how to say them Great art Fun presentation of all the huge numbers Really like this book

A fantastic book introducing the concept of ginormous numbers to kiddos that thankfully includes HOW to say each of these huge numbers at the bottom of the page for parents reading aloud The illustrations are also as gorgeous and diverse as the concepts presented, especially that despite these huge numbers there is only ONE you.Would make a wonderful holiday gift to a young person in your life.

A very readable exploration of very, very large numbers.

How do you convey the immensity of numbers like three hundred seventy billion billion Writing a 3 and a 7 followed by 19 zeros likely won t do the job Instead, this book uses awe inducing facts from the cosmos a hundred billion trillion stars in the universe and the ground beneath our feet 10 quadrillion ants on Earth to explore scale and estimation Intimate second person narration also draws in readers For example, the book opens with the line Let me tell you a secret and later connects the rea [...]

I loved this book a billion trillion much

Cool numbers book

This book does a great job of taking a large concept and making it accessible for kids Looking forward to using this in my solar system storytime coming up.

I love the use and explanations of these extremely large numbers, and I definitely plan to read this aloud with students Don t miss the author s note at the end.

4.75 Stars

marked this novel as one of their best children s books of 2017 so I had to check it out I liked many of the other books that they had listed in this category and this cover was screaming at me with its bright colors and its fun illustration that I thought I would fall for it too The illustrations inside this novel are fantastic They pop off the page and scream for your attention They begin with contrasting colors that illustrate the energetic scenes The bright, bold text then grabs your attenti [...]

Man this math book got me I have no idea how to say numbers that large Fantastic

These numbers really are mind blowing I enjoyed the number oriented way to gain perspective on the size of the universe and other quantities.

A terrific way to think about huge numbers Playful examples and illustrations make big ideas approachable.

A playful, imaginative invitation to thinking about vast numbers.

Using impossibly huge numbers this book brings the vastness of our world and universe into perspective Wonderful and FUN

Excellent non fiction picture book about space, numbers, and ways to quantify both.

Great addition to the mathematical picture book world of large numbers I appreciated the pronunciations of the large numbers at the bottom of each page Perfect for upper elementary students learning these large numbers

My favorite comparison made was that the humans in the world about 7.5 billion weigh about the same as the ants in the world about 10 quadrillion Whoa

I hope to see non fiction picture books from author Seth Fishman This book will work beautifully for both pre school and primary storytimes Did you know that the earth is covered in three trillion trees And that seven billion people weigh about the same as ten quadrillion ants Our world is full of constantly changing numbers, from a hundred billion trillion stars in space to thirty seven billion rabbits on Earth Can you imagine that many of anything The playful illustrations from New York Times [...]

I really liked this I think it d great for a curious questioning kid I liked the author s note s explanation of estimates, although I imagine it might not satisfy a kid who wants to know EVERYTHING But some things are unknowable Still, this seems like a great introduction to the natural world and some scientific concepts I also liked the art.I really really like that each page has the numbers spelled out in words if I was reading this aloud, I know i d get tripped up on some of them, so that s r [...]
