Summary, etc.:
Using New York once again, LeVar takes a stab at a vast array of numbers: How much food is delivered in a stadium? How many tickets are counted? How many people are expected to come and watch a football game? LeVar even takes the viewers on a tour of a factory where millions of crayons are made every year. Nick Sullivan, along with a curious of children, read How Much Is a Million?. In the book, they explore how to measure large sums like million, billion, and trillion, and how they would be explained in different terms, like how long would it take you to count up that high, how big a gold fish bowl should be to hold that many fish, and so on. In this unedited, original episode of Reading Rainbow, join LeVar Burton on an educational and entertaining adventure through classic books, video field trips and the always favorite "kid book reviews."
