   Buy this book NOW!!!!
Thanks to the teacher, I got my dream job. But I know I will have to buy multiple copies for my 2nd-3rd grade reading group because my teenage daughter won't let me take it to school. This is a big picture overview of a dizzying array of topics that even adults will find fascinating, and the previews don't do it justice. Even with age, the book will keep kids engaged for months. I know that some adults are a little uncomfortable with the 'explosion of information' format of books like this, but I can assure you that kids love it, and it is good practice for them to look at multiple sources of information and to learn to analyze text organization and page layout. This book is just so cool, I almost fell over. It's cool. The kids are going to have to get it away from me. after I get it away from my kid. Six more copies will be sent to school.

   A must for any kid
We got this from our library, but My 6 yr old loved it so much, we bought our own copy. It has a little bit of everything, Tunick said. The knowledge she gains from this is unbelievable, Raymond said. The price is certainly worth it, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

   You wont be disapointed!
The book has everything: A dozen or so bullet holes, a dozen or so murder scenes, and tons of other morbid oddities. All the time butterflies are flying around us, trains are rolling along, food and planes are everywhere. From the cover to the back of the book, almost everything you can think of this book has. My son absolutely LOVES it, said Jennette Tamayo, the mother of the boy. Buy the book, The Fifth Estate, by Gillian Bronfman. If you think so, you wont be disappointed.

   Grandkids Love it
I have to admit I have not seen this book, as I had it shipped to my grandkids. It's great to be back home, said Blair.

   Great content crappy binding
This book has a lot of great content that an average adult would find fun and educational, but I took off 2 stars due to the terrible binding on this book. The product was immediately re-sold to another customer, this time with minimal use. It's just that almost everything made these days cheap. It's a shame, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of NIH's National Institutes of Health.

   Kids are obsessed—great conversation starter
Kids love this book—so much so that the cover has ripped in the short time we've owned it, we're thrilled. It's a great resource, conversation starter or project starter based on ages of your kids, and a must for everyone's bookshelf. My kids are 7 and 4 and would love to read this. Only a handful of these coins have been found.

   It was perfect !!
I can't imagine how a book for 4 dollars and second hand could be so interesting and fascinating, Gillian. It was a good investment for my English studies, he said. Thanks for the book, Taylor.

   My grandson loves this book
It was a Christmas gift to my grandson and unfortunately it's not even Valentine's Day and the binding has come apart already, Mrs Hughes said. That was the reason for 4 stars instead of 5. I do wish it was of higher quality because it is one of those books that I'm sure he will want to hold onto and will remember fondly when he's grown.

   Keeps learning beautiful
We had renewed this book so many times from the library, I feared they were going to come looking for it. A gorgeously designed, thoughtful introduction to “everything” this book has captured my children's interest and sparked more than one rabbit hole of learning that we have dived down. Each page is picture heavy without being short on meaningful facts or fun trivia.
