Item Description...
Professor X and his dog, Y, teach kids how to count exponentially by powers of 10 (1, 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000, etc.), beginning at 1 and working all the way up to a googol (a 1 followed by 100 zeros) and beyond. Children fascinated by large numbers will be amazed how quickly they can count to really BIG numbers, and they'll also find answers to questions like "What comes after a trillion?" or "What's the biggest number in the world?" Real-life examples provide plenty of fun facts, such as how much popcorn Americans eat in one year, or how many hairs are on a square inch of a person's head. Along with the fun comes some powerful learning, as this unique counting book helps kids understand our number system, which is based on multiples of 10.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
google and googleplex  Sep 6, 2007
On Beyond a Million is my sons favorite math storybook. Since reading this book, I hear them using the words google and googleplex in conversations with each other. They are young (ages 5 and 7), so I don't think they understood all of it, but my seven year old figured out exponents from the book, and now he can do exponents on his own. It introduced more advanced math concepts in a fun way.
Book for a G/T youngster  Mar 18, 2007
My son loves numbers and frequently asks questions about large numbers "What is bigger than googol?" I wasn't sure if he would be able to follow everything but he really enjoyed the writing style of the book which was very story-like. He understood it and really enjoyed some of things he learned (like, there is no such number as a zillion).

Great for G/T youngsters who can read and like math and great for kids of all ages!
U of A South Elem. Education Student  Aug 30, 2004
I liked that this book was fun, but it was hard to read and go from bubble to bubble on every page. That made it very easy to get lost in and throughout the story. I did like that it had a lot of fun facts, which came in handy for older kids at least 4th grade. The book was also very good for the powers of 10. I would recommend it for teachers who are at least 4th grade to about 6th grade.
worth reading  Feb 8, 2002
My nine-year-old enjoyed having me read this book to him, though it was not nearly as compelling as some other math books we've read for fun, such as Math Trek or The Number Devil. I liked his getting a better picture of the real meanings of big numbers, since he'd had a lamentable tendency to use the words for large numbers, such as "million", "billion", and "trillion", interchangeably. My five-year-old enjoyed the pictures, though he really did not get the concepts.
Teacher review  Aug 17, 2001
This book is definately for older children. I teach 5th grade and it is to much for them. The facts that are included are very interesting and my kids love those. For my fifth graders i only use the creative facts throughout the book to help my students realize how big a million, billion,...and so in is. I felt the story was hard to follow. It is all in bubble - like a cartoon which was confusing to follow and not easy to read. For older students i think this book would be great. It does teach how easy it is to count using the power of 10's.
