Double the numbers to go from 1 to 1,000,000 in 40 pages. A stunning visualization of numbers big and small.

We start with a single tree; 1. As we turn the page, we are presented with a sum doubling the number on the page before it: 1+1 = 2; 2+2 = 4; 4+4 = 8. In this way, we reach a million (actually 1,048,576) within 40 pages. Each sum is brought to life with a simple

I loved the way the numbers are represented visually through the images, numerically through the numbers and linguistically through the words so that A Million Dots helps make concrete what can be a very ...more

I wasn't sure how in the world this author/illustrator would be able to fit one million of anything within the book's pages, but he pulled it off quite well here. Starting with the number one and one green tree or lollipop, he doubles the numbers and objects on each page so two becomes four, which becomes eight, sixteen, thirty-two, and so on. As the numbers increase, the accompanying images become smaller and smaller, and the illustrations become even more interesting. For instance, 256 ...more
