How Many Jellybeans?

by Stacey

If you are looking for a different and super fun book, I’ve found it for you.

I read about How Many Jellybeans a few weeks ago and ordered it right away. For some reason, it then sat on top of our piano until this morning when the girls needed a distraction. Caroline began NJ ASK testing this morning and there was a fair amount of anxiety in our house. More on this later but for now just fun…

How Many Jellybeans explores the concept of huge numbers in a hugely fun way and I love finding math books as plain old math is not my thing.

I knew this book was a big hit when Katherine asked if we could bring it with us to the beach to share with her cousin. And just in case you think we are taking a spontaneous spring beach trip you would be wrong. Katherine loves this book so much that she is planning ahead for our summer trips.

We always visit a great candy store during our vacation. Perhaps one million jelly beans will be on the menu this summer…

    I can second that this is a really fun book. We “only” managed 700 odd sweets when we tried to get to a million…

    Thank you for the great review, Stacey! We are so glad you and your girls enjoyed the book!
