A Million Dots by Andrew Clemens, 2006 Simon & Schuster, 48 pages
There are indeed a million dots in the book, although the book states it would take over eleven days for the reader to actually count them! On each page one of the dot numbers is highlighted and a large illustration depicts what that number represents. For instance, dot number 265,000 represents the number of different kinds of moths and butterflies on earth, and dot number 615,100 represents the number of words in the Oxford English Dictionary.
Kids and adults alike will like this book. Interesting, fun facts aided by the colorful illustrations over the dots provide a way to better understand how much a million really is!
