To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a wonderfully illustrated book about a nice range of things in nature (though note, it's very centred on North America), from rock minerals and weather to different biomes, and even covering a select range of information about different creatures, insects, plants, and constellations. It's a great book for a budding naturalist, and is an unchildish nonfiction book that might, as well, be suitable for older teenagers and adults with low literacy or special education needs, as it's fresh and cleanly laid out, with not a dense amount of information to clutter it like an encyclopaedia, but just enough to give a shallow and varied exploration and spark further curiosity. I wasn't so sure about the couple of random recipes in there, though. One of the fonts used was cursive and very hard to read sometimes, which makes using this as a teaching tool not so great, but it's a lovely collection of curiosities and titbits of information, nonetheless, and a quick read for its size.
Wow! This book is awesome! Just bought it for my 4yr old who loves nature and I am really excited about this book. It's packed full with more than 200 pages about everything from constellations, snowflakes and clouds to trees, beetles and wild animals. Beautifully illustrated. Highly recommended for children of any age and I can't wait to read it with mine. It's A5 so not too big, and I'll definitely be taking it away on holidays. I'm off to buy 2 more copies for my friends whose children will love this too. Total surprise and worthy of more than 5 stars. Lots of northern American wildlife, but don't be put off. Plenty in here to spark a child's imagination.
