You may be able to count all the way to one hundred, but have you ever counted to a googol? It's impossible! In this fun book of numbers, Robert E. Wells explores the wonderful world of zeros and tells how the googol came to be named. Counting to 100 is an accomplishment when you're a kindergartner. This book leads the reader to a number with one hundred zeros--a googol. Using multiples of ten, the pages proceed through the big numbers--thousand, million, billion, trillion, quadrillion and so on. The final page explains how a nine-year-old created the googol name for his mathematician uncle in the late 1930s.
