Toby wants to know how far it is to the end of the universe. His father likes astronomy and he is showing Toby and his friends the moon and the stars. When Toby finds out that there is only infinity, he wants to find the answer to the question that his parents cannot answer. And to do this he must get to infinity, by counting. But he needs help along the way -- his friends, his parents and his teachers.
This new story about Toby shows how everyone in school and home has a different approach to questions that have no definite answer.

"...would be a great crossover curricular story to include in a math/reading program."
