When I looked up, I shivered. How many stars were in the sky? A million? A billion? Maybe the number was as big as infinity. I started to feel very, very small. How could I even think about something as big as infinity?
Uma can't help feeling small when she peers up at the night sky. She begins to wonder about infinity. Is infinity a number that grows forever? Is it an endless racetrack? Could infinity be in an ice cream cone? Uma soon finds that the ways to think about this big idea may just be . . . infinite.

On a recent visit to my two grandchildren (a boy-5.5 yrs., girl-3.5 yrs.) was surprised to find them using the term "infinity"... in appropriate contexts, no less. Turns out they had been read this book. Kudos to the author and to the local library which had made it available. An excellent introduction to a mind-stretching concept. Good drawings and examples which speak to a young child's experience and invite him or her into the wonder of things bigger than big and beyond all endings. Highly recommend.
Great introduction to a difficult topic". Wonderful picture book about a complex subject. Lovely illustrations. Thoughtful conversations about what does infinity mean. Highly recommend this book.
