Wow! This was a pretty darn cool book! I know that sounds a little dramatic, but seriously, it’s awesome!
So, why do I like this little gem? It’s got amazing illustrations that are gorgeous, and beg to be looked at. Along with the beautiful artwork, the information provided in this book is great for not only children but adults as well!
This book is truly targeted at 4-7-year-olds, and I agree with that age range. It can, however, stretch beyond that age. I would suggest this for children in preschool through middle elementary. Its artwork will capture the attention of the little ones, and the educational information will delight everyone!
