Mom Says:

This is a great series! The information is given in a format similar to the TV series, and written from a different child’s perspective in each book. It would be age appropriate for younger children as well, but I do think they might have some difficulty staying engaged if they aren’t interested in science. Aubrey and I really enjoyed this particular book in the series as we both really love animals, and she has read this book on her own several times since we read this together.
