This is one of my most favorite books on numbers, and especially to teach children (and even adults) about really just how much a million of something is !! The illustrations are terrific by Steven Kellogg, and really portray what the author David M. Schwartz is trying to explain, in a manner that is entertaining but intelligent! I love to give this book as a gift to children and you can't go wrong doing the same. It's a great book ! ! !
What a fun book - I read this as a child and bought this for my own children. A million is a very difficult concept to grasp but this book does just that. The pictures are so lively and detailed - there are lots of things to see on every page. It also goes into "billion" and "trillion." It uses everyday objects like stars and other children to help kids intellectualy grasp how much a million really is! A classic and should be in every child's home library.
Beautifully illustrated and great concepts. I will point out that some of the characters pass away, and are represented by their headstones to show the passage of time, but it's subtle and tasteful. I didn't notice it until we'd read the book several times. On an adult note, the definition of a "trillion" really puts the national deficit into perspective!
I got this book with my five-year-old in mind, but all of my two-year-olds and three-year-old also found it engaging. The illustrations are colorful and whimsical without being overwhelming or chaotic.

I think this book is probably best suited for slightly older children as some of the examples were not familiar to my children. For example, my children have never been in a stadium, so that example was a little abstract for them.

Overall a good book and an excellent way to introduce the concept a million.
This was for an autistic child who loves this kind of thing.
good book thanks
Great book to use in my classroom!
We love it so much we literally read it a million times every day. Haha. No really we do read it every day
