Ratings & Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This book's approach and vocabulary are far too mature for children. The questions posed are intriguing, but the replies are framed in a manner that is too adult. Our granddaughter is eleven and a member of MENSA, and she found the book's style to be uninteresting. I'm keeping the book in anticipation of her future interest. Both my husband and I were educators, before retiring, and we consider this book to be suitable for older teens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I returned this book. It wasn't suitable for kids. It was a very boreing looking book. The description on your catalog was not very good. For the cost of $12.95 I expected a hard cover and/or at least reading that would hold the interest of kids. Information may have been good but presentation was poor
