Big Numbers: And Pictures that Show Just how Big They Are!
A very lively but informative treatment of the concept of big numbers, expressed in quantities of peas. The book begins with a single pea on a plate and progresses from 1 to 10 to 100 to 1000 all the way to a quadrillion (which form a small mountain that covers the town in which the original lone pea sat on a plate). Children will love the visual playfulness of the ever-growing quantity of peas and the sidecomments they generate. The final page shares the authors' various calculations with the reader.
