Great Book for boys 8+. Encourage them to keep in car and pick up when bored. So much information about life and what is around them.

Ordered 2 books after reading at my daughter's house. HAd them shipped to my local Walmart and they arrived with the covers a little beat up. The book itself is fantastic and fun to read for all ages.

I ordered this book for my ten year old son and when it arrived it was well worth it. The book was even larger than I thought. Great value and awesome book.
