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"!:
A confident, cheeky musk ox takes over the whole alphabet, convincing Zebra that musk ox actually belong on every single letter page, not just on the "m" page, stuck in the middle where nobody remembers.
"I didn't ruin your book. I saved it. Every other alphabet book starts with "A is for apple." That's sooo boring. I think you should do something different. How about this: a is for musk ox."
Zebra shouts in exasperation "But musk ox does not start with A!"
Ahh, but it DOES, and with many other letters too. Read on to find out how (but pay careful attention to m, p, t and z.)

Here are some books that use the letters of the alphabet to tell a story...or a joke. These books make naming the letters and practicing with the sounds the letters make fun...just like musk ox and zebra!
