First AMS Book for Kids Tackles Really Big Numbers

In the American Mathematical Society's first-ever book for kids (and those still young at heart), mathematician and author Richard Evan Schwartz leads math lovers of all ages on an innovative and richly illustrated journey through the infinite number system.

Really Big Numbers begins with small, easily observable numbers before building up to truly gigantic ones, like a nonillion, a tredecillion, a googol, and ones too huge to even have names.
