This book is packed with information about the Earth. Plus, there is enough humor mixed in that my kids were interested throughout the entire story. There is enough science in this book that kids can learn something new each time they pick it up. This is not your average "one and done" book. Children of all ages will go back to it again and again. I know my kids will! ( )
