   So fun
This was a huge hit with my six-year-old. He loves the speaker and planetarium pages and works really well. I bought a used copy and was worried that it may be a little worn out. Fortunately, it was in pristine condition to my surprise and had no tears, missing pieces or damage. We love interactive learning books like this and I would recommend it for a kid who has an interest in how things work and is a little older so that the book is not destroyed.

   Educational and fun
My five-year-old son loves this book! The speaker works so-so, but the other pages are so fun. The decoder has been particularly entertaining.

   Ingenious
I didn 't think that this would be as fun as it is, but the book is a very sweet gift idea and my adult loved it. She even took the time to make the Planetarium viewer for the best resolution with her cell phone flashlight. We had previously used pizza boxes as speakers, and this speaker isn 't as ingenious, but still fun, as is the decoder and calendar. Not quite as excited about the instrument, but still a good bit of writing in the book. In all, a great interactive present that does not just sits on the shelf.

   This book is NOT a planitarium
They need to change the title of this book to something that accurately describes this book,Poor Construction on all pop-ups. Spiraling does not work. Speaker is made of round paper and can not be made as the instructions instruct. The jury was VERY disappointed. If I had seen it without wrapping, I would not have bought it in a bookstore. At all, not worth the money.

   Wonderful!
This book is absolutely beautiful and every page is another world of wonder. It is perfect for little explorers and illustrates the delightful engineering possibilities of pop-up books. And the planetarium page is fantastic - turn the lights off and put your phone inside the pop-up page and the room is transformed into a planetarium.

   Amazing book! Unbelievably cool.
This book is a SO COOL. When I opened it up, I actually said out loud how did they make this? The construction is solid and well-made, and its clear that there has been a lot of attention paid to detail. It is unlike any pop-up book I have ever seen.
