Everybody knows that a million is a LOT, but trying to imagine what a million looks like can be a bit mind-boggling. Much like Andrea Menotti 's How Many Jelly Beans? or David Schwartz's How Much Is a Million?, A Million Dots uses art to help kids visualize very large numbers. Author Andrew Clements presents readers with intriguing numerical factoids - for instance, did you know that the sooty tern can fly nonstop for 87,600 hours? - and illustrator Mike Reed uses lots and lots of tiny dots (one million dots in all) to create amusing, attention-grabbing illustrations for each bit of trivia.
