I was really excited about this book. Peas, peas and yet more peas -- it sounds like a great way to visually present the idea of exponential growth in mathematics. The execution of this idea, however, is only moderately successful.
This is only my opinion and may not be true for all readers, but I found the presentation inhibited rather than clarified the concept. Sometimes two pictures were on the same page and the graphics were very busy -- many characters, inserts and dialogue balloons detracted from the impact of seeing a growing pile of peas. Perhaps you remember the film "Powers of Ten" that showed a couple picnicking and then distanced the camera from them exponentially; that film was elegant and evocative. This was pretty messy. As I said, though, this is my opinion and kids may love it.

A really fun book. Great illustrations. Uses drawings of peas to illustrate just how big big numbers are. Makes it easier to explain to younger kids.

Wanted to love this book but didn’t

I’ve taught from preschool to eighth grade

This is depicted as a storybook but doesn’t lend itself well to a read aloud

Complex concept of exponents

Author attempts to connect size with something tangible
Kudos for the effort

Young ones just get lost

It’s not a piece I’d recommend adding

Videos tend to say this quicker in a more understood manner for young students

We are in the process of buying our second copy of this book for another grandchild, because we are impressed with the fun but intelligent way it presents for children the concepts associated with big numbers. It is a pleasure to see a book for children that presents fundamental scientific principles with fun and wonder. It's a winner.
