About the Author

David A. Adler taught math for eight years. In that time he learned many things from his students -- including the fact that they thought fractions were hard. So he decided to prove that learning how to work with fractions is not only easy, but also fun! He lives with his family on Long Island. You can learn more about him at www. davidaadler.com.

Edward Miller loves to make concepts clear to kids and has demonstrated that in his previous nonfiction books. School Library Journal praised his Alphabeep: A Zipping, Zooming ABC by Debora Pearson as stunningly illustrated. He lives in New York City. You can visit his website at www.edmiller.com.

Reviews

"This accessible picture book presents big numbers, considers how we use them, and offers a sense of the quantities they represent. . . . Adler's text is imaginative as well as logical, and Miller's brightly colored digital illustrations are cheerful and inventive."--Booklist

"The text is well organized, so the concepts build on one another, and Miller's digital pictures, with smiley-faced children front and center, illustrate the ideas in kid-friendly ways."--The Horn Book

"Adler does a wonderful job of helping school-age children understand the concept that a million is a heck of a lot. . . . The book is perfectly suited to elementary students, who are able to think conceptually, and their foundational knowledge of math will help them make the leaps they will need to take to understand millions, billions, and trillions. For curious children who find numbers intriguing, this book is right on the money."--School Library Journal
