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.
Nice book covering an enormous number of subject, from the usual earth and space, animals and human body, to the less usual Chinese zodiac and saying hello in different languages. Having said that, the information is covered rather briefly, making it easy to understand for younger children, but too shallow for older children. I am buying this as a present for a 6year old who is not too keen on reading. I am hoping the many illustrations, and the one double page a topic setting of this book, to make it easy for him.
There are pages on healthy eating and numbers (counting, multiplying, special numbers etc), musical instruments, flags (only a small selection), scientists and inventors (again only a small selection), and many more.
I like the 10 top pages (10 longest river, 10 smallest countries etc)
There are some stories, like the tortoise and the hare, the ant and the grasshopper.
The content also covers some history, like vikings, ancient Americans, native Americans...
I took a star out because I think the book is rather American-heavy in general.
My children are 6 and 3 years old and they were fixed to this book. We read a couple of pages and they had so much fun learning facts about different things. I am so impressed with the way it is set out. The pictures are fun and easy to understand which is good for the little ones. This book is put together very well. The pictures help keep kids interested in the book and there are so many facts. I am also learning as we go along. The only reason I have given it 4 stars is that the front of the book was a little bent.
I bought it for my 6 year old son and he loved it very much. Then I bought it as a birthday present for one of his friends. I got a very good feed back from his mum that he loves it very much. Worth buying it. I am planning to buy couple of other books in this series.
