"This picture book is one in a gazillion."--Jane O'Connor, the New York Times-bestselling author of the Fancy Nancy series
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?
The playful illustrations from New York Times-bestselling artist Isabel Greenberg and the friendly, straightforward voice of author Seth Fishman illuminate some of the biggest numbers in the universe--a hundred billion trillion stars--and the smallest--one unique and special YOU. Here is a book for story time, for science time, for math time, for bedtime, and all the times in between.
Perfect for curious children, classrooms eager for STEM content, and readers who have devoured Ada Twist, Scientist and How Much Is a Million?
A dream-come true for space geeks everywhere, what kid doesn't dream of being on the moon or, in this case, Mars? Preparing for this adventure is arduous, time consuming and knowledge-expanding, which author Maberry brings home in fascinating detail and authority. Tristan, whose Mom and Dad are also going with the first 50 humans to colonize Mars, has a longstanding girlfriend in Izzy - who both have to deal with reality TV, the media and constant attention, as this is a one-way trip for Tristan. Intrigue on the ground in the form of violent Neo-Luddites protesters - things go haywire on the voyage. With a fact-moving plot, an interesting subplot of unknown Chinese Martian colonists, the thrill of space is wonderfully conveyed in this fantastic story. Hang on as I hope there are sequels in store! - Maureen
