A good read... Jan 14, 2008
Like most books in this series, this book is very informative and interesting for kids to re-read many times over. Each time they re-read, they may see new pictures or comments as each page is filled with extensive detail. Nicely illustrated, and thankfully, not too long as I like to finish reading this to my toddlers in less than 15 minutes.
