The Kid Should See This

A Hundred Billion Trillion Stars, the book trailer

Let me tell you a secret: The Sun is just a star. And there are a hundred billion trillion stars. The Earth is covered by 370 billion billion gallons of water and three trillion trees. Seven million five hundred billion people live in cities on our planet, and so do ten quadrillion ants. The entire world is full of crazy numbers…

And this HarperKids promotional trailer for A Hundred Billion Trillion Stars by Seth Fishman explores them. With illustrations by Isabel Greenberg, the picture book is a delightful dip into the power of numbers and the vast beauty of our planet.
