This book discusses the number one million by showing one million dots throughout the book. Also on each page they discuss what the picture is talking about. It is usually measuring something very small and uses it to measure something very big. Like comparing how many shoe boxes will it take to stack to be as tall as Mount Everest. ( )

This book had a lot of random facts that I enjoyed and never knew before. ( )

A book of many dots leading up to a million. On getting up to the millionth dot there are several dots circled throughout the book with the number corresponding to it. There is also a fun scientific fact to go along with that number. This would be a great book to read when learning number in math. Also it would be great to read in science or history with all the fun informational facts through out it. ( )

Simple yet clever, Clements asks the reader what they think a million dots might look like then shows them accumulating page after page. I like how Clements will stop at a particular dot, tell you its number on the way to one million, and compare that number to something in the real world. Great, stress-free way to build number sense.
