Theme:Instead of counting a million of something, we can imagine a million through skills of estimation and mathematical reasoning.
Illustrations and text from this feature book help readers visualize how much a million, a billion and a trillion really are.

LeVar explores ways of counting large numbers as he talks to people who share grouping and estimating techniques. In a visit to the Crayola Crayon Factory, workers show how crayons are made and talk about the large number of crayons they handle in their jobs. Then on to Giants Stadium where vendors and stadium employees use estimation to prepare for game day.
