Count to a Million – Jerry Pallotta


A creative way to help children visualize exactly how big the number one million is.

The illustrations are clear and the text large. The last page includes a chart of the numbers helping kids to see how many wa

This book was a really fun read. It was made for people to actually picture how much a million really is. There were a bunch of different ways that the author made us visualize different big amounts. The book is great for the classroom because it involves math. There is a lot of adding and subtracting for the kids to do and it shows them that math is everywhere. It is also a good example of a nonfiction book that isn't a biography or autobiography.

I like this book because it introduces the concept of base ten and place value. In addition, this book talks about 10 times 10 is 100, and 100 times 10 is 1000, etc. I can use this book in my classroom to allow my students to see the pattern and use materials such as the hundred flats, trains of ten, etc.

This book teaches about Place Value
Base ten knowledge
It shows the columns in which whatever number should be placed.
Like for the ones, tens, hundreds, etc it goes on until a million.
