Customer review by Hdh916

5.0 stars by Hdh916

I bought this book for my 8 year old son, who is always watching things on YouTube to learn about various things, such as tornadoes, etc. He loves to learn new facts and is intrigued by learning new and weird things, such as those that are covered in this book. He teaches me things he learns from the book and facts he has learned about that I did not know, like we drink the same water dinosaurs drank while they existed. This book is full of great information and keeps my son and daughter entertained all the time. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who has a child who likes reading and loves to learn new and cool facts.
