Books reviews
A lot of good science and some bad science.

I'd look for a better science book for kids. The simple errors in this book strongly suggests it was not proofread by real scientists or a bright highschool student before publication. I'll list just two.

Page 58: Bats use radar to tell how far away an object is. This came a bit after the short chapter on sound waves which could have included echolocation - the actual way bats navigate their surroundings. Bats use sound waves rather than radio waves.

Page 71: "Batteries are self-contained generators..." Batteries store and release energy. They do not generate it.
Very easy read for the little ones. It covers so much!
My son loves this series. Great books!
Purchased this as a gift for my science teacher. She really liked it. It had lots of interesting facts, which is nice for the classroom.
kid's liked it - has some things in it they don't really teach in school any longer - old school easy to remember things
