How Much Is a Million?

Schwartz and Kellogg have provided us a great literary resource for teaching children important math concepts through imaginative pictures and a fun story style. This series of books helps us teach how to quantify large numbers, an introduction to basic financial concepts, and why and how we use standard measurements. I've found that introducing hard to understand concepts through books and pictures instead of approaching it as something we are going to learn makes my children more receptive. By allowing them to "discover" things on their own, through books, they learn things easier and quicker. Adding the beautiful artwork of Steven Kellogg, which has inspired the imagination of children for decades, doesn't hurt either.
