How Many Jelly Beans? A Giant Book of Giant Numbers!

Andrea Menotti, illus. by Yancey Labat. Chronicle, $18.99 (28p) ISBN 978-1-4521-0206-1
This utterly delightful oversize book takes on big numbers, using jelly beans as counters. When Emma and Aiden are asked how many jelly beans they want, they carry on a boasting match, resulting in escalating amounts of candy (“He can have twenty? I’ll have twenty-five!”). Five hundred beans cover a coffee table, and 1,000 beans are divided out over the days of a year on calendar pages. The bright jelly beans are one of the few sources of color in Labat’s loosely sketched spreads, which culminate in a jaw-dropping 10-panel foldout finale for one million jelly beans. Next stop: the dentist. Ages 4–8. (May)
