Really Big Numbers Book Review

We recently reviewed a really fun and unique book called Really Big Numbers by Richard Evan Schwartz.

If you are a long time reader of my blog, you may remember our review of another book by Richard called You Can Count on Monsters.  That book teaches about prime and composite numbers, and even though Funny Bunny was just 8 years old at the time, she loved it.  When we actually started learning more about prime numbers, it was the first things she ran to.  We still enjoy flipping through it together.

Well, Richard's new book, Really Big Numbers, is about just that.  Great for children ages 6 and up, this book takes you on a journey through the infinite number system, using crazy and interesting illustrations.

As you get further into the book, it's pretty much more than your brain can comprehend, but still fun to learn about.  You learn about numbers like a googol-plex.  That's really big in case you didn't know.

And it introduces children to numbers they have probably never heard of. Numbers greater than a billion or a quadrillion. Numbers like a quinquavigintillion.  That's a fun word, right?!

Find Out More:  You can find out more about Really Big Numbers at The AMS Bookstore.  Really Big Numbers retails for just $20.
