Editorial Reviews

Review

An out loud reading of 4,962,571 should excite your child s mathematical imagination as Zachary Zane figures out how to count as high as he can. Ruth Chung's illustrations delight the senses as Zachary connects the abstract concept of numbers to the world around him. 4,962,571 may be one of those books that you read with your children 4,962,571 times! --Maren Schmidt, Understanding Montessori: A Guide for Parents

This book delightfully captures the Montessori goal of children not only coming up with questions on their own, but also figuring out how to answer them. Zach s curiosity and inventiveness, as well as his joy in his self-directed learning, are true hallmarks of Montessori education... --Marcy Krever, American Montessori Society

A 'wonderful' book, Eissler has captured the innocence and wonder of a child's sense of discovery. Parents reading this story to their children can prepare for an onslaught of questions like, 'How many of these make that?' --Jim Fitzpatrick, Founder and Head of School, Santa Barbara Montessori School

"First and foremost, I found Trevor Eissler's book, 4,962,571, a brilliant work with beautiful, engaging artwork and a compelling story of a young boy learning about the world--through the lens of exploration. As the father of three children, I cannot emphasize the need for us as parents to augment the learning process by enabling our children to explore the world around them. This is precisely the underlying theme of this book, that learning is not a unidirectional activity. It involves a tactile approach to the world at large. In this delightful story, Zach learns more about counting than the mere addition of numbers. He learns about trees, airplanes, people, and a host of other things. In addition, the manner in which Eissler writes helps the book spirit adventure in the minds of young readers. I found this book a pure delight and will be reading it to my daughter Abigail, over and over. I also commend Ruth Chung, the illustrator for 4,962,571. She did a marvelous job, BRAVO! In short, 4,962,571 is a book you will cherish with your children as they seek to explore the world around them, learning and growing with you. Because . . . children learn best when they see the teacher learning too! Great job Trevor, two thumbs up and I'll be looking forward to your next book." --John Serpa, author of LiNK

If you're looking for a book that your children ages 3-7 will love, this is the book for you. The illustrations are magnificent and the story immediately engages your child's imagination. Watch as you child counts along with the boy in the book...and don't be surprised if you do a little counting as well!

My favorite Christmas gift to give this year!

This book tells the story of a boy's interest in numbers with a delightful and creative approach. I recently read this book to a large group of children and their parents at our school book fair and was amazed at the attention level of both the children and the adults listening. The book is beautiful illustrated and very clever, and made my children want to go find things to count! It takes a big number and makes it a series of adventures for an inventive little boy.

This book will help engage your child's interest in math, counting, and problem solving. A must have for young families!

Format: Hardcover
4,962,571 is a well-conceived, curious, and wonderfully illustrated book that children and parents will enjoy equally. The follows the adventures of a young boy seeking to count to 4,962,571 in his own unique way - creatively reaching his goal by his own pathway. If you are a parent of Montessori children, it will certainly give you a smile; but regardless of you children's education, it will validate the need for creative problem solving by children. It is a relatively quick and very fun read -- and give you plenty of opportunities for discussions with your children. A great addition to the home library.

Cute book, cute illustrations. I wasn't a big fan of the language used. I think they had someone with a good idea, and they found a good illustrator, but themselves they weren't a real children's book author.
