Top reviews from India
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It makes several simple but important concepts clearer for kids, in a visual language they understand and relate to.
I ended up buying one more copy to give as a gift.
Completely soiled around and books are bent. I have been purcharsing books in Amazon, for many years and this is the first time I am facing such an issue.
Given the benefit of doubt to Amazon and the seller, probably all the remaining books are of similar poor quality, thus even the replacement is getting worser.
Please have this in mind, during Covid times. There seems to be an reduction in quality of such books.
Best gift to any kid under 10yr old.

But please, please, can the text be updated so that not every character doing something other than parenting or housework is a 'he'. 52% of the world's population are women and young children need to see both sexes represented and not limited by their gender - in fact women more so as, let's face it, there's little issue with men being represented in books and the media.
