Customer Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 2reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by This is book is fun reading. It actually allows me and kids to come together. Although it is easy ready, it encourages them to read and challenges them at the same time. In addition to the fact that they enjoy reading this book, it further stimulates and challenges them to think outside the box. 10/02/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Beautiful and interesting book! This book is full of very interesting snippets of unusual and interesting things. The art and typography is great! I bought this for my 8-year old and he loves it! It does not go into detail about each fact but gets him interested in so many different topics. If we want more info about something we do a little extra research. He calls it his favorite book and wants all the books in the series. Highly recommended! 06/05/2012
