Format: Hardcover
Boy, I tell you. You get a kid and suddenly you find yourself scheming all these crazy schemes. "I'm going to get my kid to like vegetables!" "I'm going to get my kid to appreciate classical music!" "I'm going to get my kid to like math!" Crazy, right? I mean the first two seem doable, but the third? I'm an English major, guys. What are the chances that I'm even capable of instilling a math love in my offspring? To the rescue comes a new generation of picture books for kids with math-centric concepts. I'm not talking about books that take a math problem, turn it into a story, and somehow that's going to magically get kids excited about integers. No, I'm talking about math books that practically dare kids to deny the pleasure of counting, estimating, etc. Such books most certainly exist, though it takes some digging to locate them. Now at long last we've a book that not only encourages kids to count on their own, but hits them over the head with a number they may hear all the time but could never quite comprehend. Until now.

Emma and Aiden. They like their jelly beans, they do. When Emma is asked how many she'd prefer she opts for a standard "Ten!" Not to be outdone, her brother Aiden asks for "Twenty!" So naturally Emma asks for twenty-five, and Aiden sees her twenty-five and raises the number to fifty. At a certain point, of course, Emma points out to her bro that when it comes to numbers like five hundred jelly beans (and you can see all five hundred on the table in front of them) there's no way a person could eat that many. Aiden points out that in a year he could eat as many as a thousand. Up and up and up the numbers go, with more and more jelly beans filling the pages until at long last you reach the thrilling conclusion. Turn the page and you find some folded pages.

There's show-and-tell, and then there's SHOW.

This book SHOWS children just how big those numbers are -- BIG.

The enormous fold-out surprise at the end is our favorite part. This is a fun book.

Also, it makes me hungry for jelly beans. :)

This is a great book to give kids a visual of numbers. On the last fold out page, it has 1 million jelly beans. This is such a hard concept for kids to understand and this book is Wonderful!! A must have for teachers.

How Many Jellybeans is captivating with its jumbo size, brilliant colors and fabulous artwork. The narrative is fun showing typical sibling rivalry and the funny but relevant comments from the doggie make it interesting. The surprise is the last pages....really one million! Great math concept book for primary grades and teachers. Good book for circle time....1st graders would love it!

My 1.5 and 2.5 year old nephews LOVE THIS BOOK!! They like to count the jellybeans and pretend to eat them. The end of the book has HUUUGE fold out page that represents ONE MILLION JELLY BEANS. They boys love it and say "I want to see one million!" and again, pretend to eat the jellybeans haha. The book itself is oversized (in a good way!) and their mother really appreciated how it helps the boys grasp big large HUGE numbers! It's cute, I recommend it for sure.

This book was great for helping my child really understand how big numbers are. He thought it was awesome when the last page opened out to show the size of 1 million jelly beans.

Love it! The kids and their dog eventually get all the way up to wanting a million jelly beans which are all displayed on a very large foldout in the back of the book.

I especially like the way the jelly beans are grouped throughout the book to show the different amounts being discussed. It's more important than ever to get a sense of large numbers since we talk about them every day (GB of computer memory, trillions of dollars of debt, etc) and this book can help with that.

Do note that the large format means it's not good for car reading (I had wanted to do that).
