How Many Jelly Beans?

If you could have as many as you wanted, how many jelly beans would be enough? (I could eat a lot...except the black ones. I always gave those to my Mom.) Is a handful good? How about 10? How about 100? The kids in this book up the number of hoped for jelly beans until they get to a million. On each colorful page kids can watch the number grow in the pictures and actually count the jelly beans. Even a million! The million page fold out to make a giant poster of ONE MILLION COUNTABLE BEANS! For small children, it's often hard to tell the difference between one minute and 5 minutes...let alone big numbers like 100 or 1,000 or 10,000. This book is a great way to introduce the big numbers. And it's funny, which is always an A+ way to end a book. Author: Andrea Menotti

More books to help get a handle on numbers, the big ones as well as amount words like "pair" and "couple" and concepts like "more than" and "less than"!:
