Simple and comprehensive, a great resource
With a wealth of multimedia and interactive material, plus a friendly and informative style, this is an excellent way to keep kids of most ages entertained on long journeys and educated at the same time. One that can keep parents and kids reading together on the coach for a long while. Look forward to the next one.
Beautiful, simple, and very, very interactive!
This is a geat, highly visual, book on space. It is very interactive, with every page full of additional information to explore. My 3 & a half year old can easily navigate the pages, and has fun exploring all the content as I read along for him. And the whole thing is just beautiful, and expertly put together.
This interactive book is well done and easy to use. The interactive portions and embedded videos are fun. My only complaint is that it’s all in metric, which I understand is used exclusively in scientific fields, but what about my poor American child ;) There is a general conversion chart at the end, but I would much rather it listed both throughout the book. Still, I highly recommend!
