Infinity and Me

Have you ever thought about infinity? I just watched this (rather confusing but very interesting) TED talk about language acquisition. It was awesome. In order to acquire anything, we need to have whatever is being taught brought down to our level (not below, just to the right level!). This concept—infinity—is brought to my level and to the level of most children in this awesome picture book!

Ages 8 and up.

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.
