The Official "M&M's" Book of the Millenniumby Larry Dane Brimner, Karen E. Pellaton
With the help of the "M&M's" "RM" BrandCharacters, readers learn why people keep track of time, and how they do, and whether a millennium is a really long time or not....All leading up to answering the big question: why the calendar we use to help us keep track means that we have a millennium right now, and not some other time. Along the way, there are side bars and other excursions, into blue moons, the longest year ever (445 days!), and an explanation of why MM=2000.
Wrapping up with a look at the ways the world is celebrating the millennium, and what we might expect in the next one, this guide to the millennium from the "Official Candy of the New Millennium" "TM" includes everything a child (and most adults) need to know about the turning over of our calendar's odometer.
