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!
