Descrizione

How many jelly beans are enough? How many are too many? Aiden and Emma can't decide. Is 10 enough? How about 1,000? That's a lot of jelly beans. But eaten over a whole year, it's only two or three a day. This giant picture book offers kids a fun and easy way to understand large numbers. Starting with 10, each page shows more and more colorful candies, leading up to a big surprise—ONE MILLION JELLY BEANS! With bright illustrations, How Many Jelly Beans? makes learning about big numbers absolutely scrumptious!

  • (4/5)
    A number book using jelly beans to show what each number looks like. One million jelly beans is a lot.
  • (4/5)
    “How many jelly beans would you like, Emma?” asks the half-shown figure. The contemplative Emma response, “Ten.” The excited Aiden responds, “Twenty!” Competition ensues between the girl and the boy, each upping the ante of the number of jelly beans they want. The female is the cautionary one: “That’s too many. You can’t eat five hundred jelly beans.” “Oh, yeah,” the boy counters. As the conversation continues, captured in speech bubbles, the characters do more than count. If you eat a thousand jelly beans in a year, that’s only 2 or 3 a day, as cleverly shown in a year’s calendar, each date picturing either two or three jelly beans. Dividing up the 100,000 jelly beans into varying flavors invite further mathematical language. A huge foldout shows a million jelly beans, which the boy finally admits is probably too many. Besides introduction to large numbers, counting, and a context for operations, the book invites an interesting analysis of gender stereotypes.

    This book is basically two kids going back and forth, bragging about how many jelly beans they can eat. The amazing illustrations show exactly how many jelly beans the kids are talking about, making them look a bit ridiculous. At the end, they say they can eat a million jelly beans. The book has a ten page fold out spread of the million jelly beans. This book would be great to read to allow young children to visualize these large numbers.
  • (5/5)
    A really fun, extra-large counting book with an amazing but somewhat cumbersome gatefold.
  • (5/5)
    Big numbers are hard for children. This is a big book to help with big numbers.You can see five things. You can hold five things (probably) in your hand. But what about five hundred things? Five thousand? A hundred thousand? A million?This big book (librarians should be warned that it will not fit in a child's backpack and has foldout pages that will tear easily, but please don't let that stop you from acquiring it for your collection) uses a competitive brother and sister to allow children to visualize big numbers. With jelly beans. This amazing illustrator (how long did it take Labat?!) actually draws, on an enormous foldout page, one million jelly beans. Love this one.
