Back of Book:
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?
This is a wonderful story to read to children about the concept of estimation. The pages are filled with numbers about the stars in the sky, and trees on the earth. This is an excellent book to give to children who ask lots of questions. I love the creativeness of this story Seth Fishman did a terrific job of taking a simple concept like estimation and making it a beautiful picture book. The illustrations in this book are different from most I have seen. I love the diversity in each picture. All children are represented in these illustrations. This is one of those books that should be in every school and library.
