I received A Hundred Billion Trillion Stars for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
From New York Times bestselling artist Isabel Greenberg and author Seth Fishman comes A Hundred Billion Trillion Stars which illuminates some of the biggest numbers in the universe—a hundred billion trillion stars—and the smallest—one unique and special YOU. Here is a book for story time, for science time, for math time, for bedtime, and all the times in between.
Did you know that the earth is covered in three trillion trees? And that seven billion people weigh about the same as ten quadrillion ants? Our world is full of constantly changing numbers, from a hundred billion trillion stars in space to thirty-seven billion rabbits on Earth. Can you imagine that many of anything?

Isabel Greenberg goes through 57 paintbrushes in a year and draws for 6 hours a day with 4 to 5 cups of tea to keep her going. She has written 2 graphic novels and illustrated 5 books for children. She lives in London.
This book is ridiculously cute! A great way to get even young preschoolers interested in science like the number of stars to the number of rabbits on the planet. Told in a way that can really wow kids (and adults) with interesting facts both on Earth and in our universe. Lil Sis at 5 is especially in love with space lately so this was a huge hit with her. She even plans to be an astronaut for Halloween and now wants to be in space longer than the current record (which is listed in the book). With so many numbers to read I find it is an especially great book to read before bed as it is sort of soothing but it would be a great book to read to a class that is talking about numbers/space. The pictures complement the big numbers in the book so well that this book is children’s literary perfection.
