A Million Dots

If today is your birthday, then it’s only 525,600 minutes until your next birthday.  Your heart beats about 700,000 times a week. And if you took one second to look at each dot in Andrew Clements’ book, A Million Dots, it would take eleven and a half days. Illustrated with exactly one million dots by Mike Reed, this book is crammed with number facts.
