   Evolutionary But Cute
The book has cute pictures but it also presents theories on why the pictures were taken. It starts talking about Earth and its family, then goes into being born, being a baby Earth, and then the evolution of Earth, the planets, the animals, and humans. If you can skip over the middle, this book is cute and entertaining, the book arrived wrinkled up. I am disappointed and will be returning it because it was damaged and several pages are slightly ridiculous, Morgenthau said.
   Weird story
I did like this book for my son, but there is not like a complete story. It's just that the writer of the book was a weirdo. It talks about dinosaurs, but then it doesn't make sense with the next page. It's great to have a kid that likes it, too." I didn't like that much of it.
   Great book
It's great to be back home, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California. It is short and simple, and helps him keep his attention while teaching him some basic math. The pictures are a lot of fun, Mr. Caramore said.
   Seemed happy
It was a present from my son for his birthday. The nurse said Mr. Kennedy was "happy and liked his present". I got this from the National Geographic Super Space activity sticker book.
   Very good book
I bought this for my 4 year old grand daughter and while a bit technical for that age, the pictures kept her interest and she enjoyed most of the information, Melissa said. Also, I got this for a 3-year-old grand daughter who was not interested in playing with the dice. Both are well written and well illustrated. It's great to start conversations about science with young children.
   A must read for primary grades
This is one of my all-time favorite books for primary school students. It's great to be back home, and I'm excited to be back teaching, too." I rarely write reviews for books, but I had to because this was a must-read.
   Keeps the younger child’s interest throughout including the awesome illustrations
This book was purchased as a Christmas present. It was great to be back home, said Blair. She kept asking him to read it again and again. He just loves books about science, the earth, the weather, he said. Although I purchased it after reading the wonderful reviews, I have not read it myself. I did glance through it and I can tell you it's well written and keeps the younger child's interest, he was 3 and turned 4 shortly after receiving this book. The illustrations are so awesome, I almost fell over. I'm extremely happy with the purchase, said Dr. Steve. Dhaliwal.
   54 Billion Years is the perfect book to celebrate Earth Day and learn about our ...
And if that wasn't enough, Mars will get its own star next year. In this book, readers will find everything they need to know about the world around them. Stacy takes you through a history of how the universe was created. My space-loving son is obsessed with this book and keeps reminding me of all the fun facts we read about on a daily basis! Between the witty text and the hilarious pictures you won't mind when your childstudents ask you to read this one again and again!
   Smart, s
Stacy McAnulty, our third rock from the Sun, has all but told us its rollicking version of astronomy and geology. Indeed, interest in science fiction has taken off among even the most reluctant readers. Did you mourn Pluto's downgrading to mere mortals as I did? After reading this page in Earth, I felt a rush of energy. My First Billionth, you might find the change endearing. It was a total waste of money, and I had to buy another one.
   A Must Have!
This book is by far the best. The voice of Earth, telling your little one about its history and family, hooks you on the spot. It's personable and fun, but informative and thought provoking, Levine said. The illustrations are charming, the book says. My son absolutely loves this book. He's a voracious reader who loves to read it again and again, asking questions and marveling at the artist's work. Before you can remove the dust cover, make sure you take the screwdriver out of the tool. A must have for librarians. Even if your child is autistic, he or she may still be able to read.
