Reviews - What do customers think about Eye Wonder: Space (Eye Wonder)?

Fascinating facts and interesting pictures for curious kids  Apr 10, 2005
As soon as we opened this book, my inquisitive 5-year-old was hooked. It is filled with interesting facts about our solar system, written on a level just perfect for ages 4-8 (the target age group for these books). The pictures and graphics are rich and colorful. I bought "Ocean", too, and now we often read these books instead of good-night stories. Each 2-page spread contains so much to see and discuss that it takes the place of a standard good-night story.
Here's an example: "A planet's year is the time it takes to make one full journey (orbit) around the Sun.... Planets with the biggest orbits have the longest years." For a kid who is just beginning to comprehend how long a year is, it's interesting to toy with the idea that a "year" is a different amount of time on each planet. Ok, it's a stretch, and I don't think my 5-year-old really understood, but that's just one example of the types of things we sit and talk about after looking at this book. Fun!
So if your child is curious about the sun, moon and planets, I would really recommend this book. (Even for older kids, frankly. My mother and I both enjoy it and learned from it. And it's much more interesting to read and look at than a typical story book.)
