My Take on the Book
My 10 year old was just talking about this book and how excited she was to get this! She loves to read all of the facts and figures and become better informed about the world around her. This book definitely does just that. The book is full of so many amazing facts, figures and more on so many different topics. The book is filled with stunning pictures that really draws you in and I found that as my daughter was reading through this she was educating us as well! I also loved that there is new free digital extras that she could tap into as a part of this book too! All-in-all if you have a child that loves to learn, this is a book that they will want to read!
