''A new book favourite in our house and oh so cute. And oh so
wonderfully illustrated... and it includes some maths too!'' - Paul
''Children are fascinated by big numbers and when I presented them with this book, they instantly wanted to check that the sum was correct - and then count the number of dots! Simple, yet stunning, 'A Million Dots' is a great book for exploring and discussing numbers wherever you are!' ' - North Somerset Teachers Book Awards
''The simple but powerful story is a visual tale of one dot doubling on each page to become 1,048,576 dots! A wonderfully simple way to introduce young children to concepts of number.'' - It's All About Stories - Facebook
'This is a beautiful book for counting games. It created some amazing discussions in the classroom and is also something that can be used in an art class introducing artists such as Seurat and pointillism. The very graphic nature of the illustrations align themselves to the mathematical concept of the book. A very clever book that promotes numerous scenarios for curious children.' - IBBY UK by Dr. Karenanna Knight
'Potential goldmine of teaching ideas. ' - School Reading List
'My goodness, what a clever book. A Million Dots is a perfect book to support both literacy and numeracy as well as create a sense of wonder. For such a simple concept, A Million Dots is beautifully and effectively presented and although this is a book for children, I think it would be a lovely gift to any adult interested in numbers too.' - Linda's Book Bag
