I read the book aloud to my 3rd and 5th graders, and they always begged for “one more chapter.” The illustrations are wonderful; they are whimsical and they increase understanding of the scenes, making them aesthetically and intellectually useful additions. I wish there were books like All in a Drop detailing all the scientific discoveries of the past. I could create an awesome “living books” science curriculum if there were!
Amazon can't help itself....I should have known NOT to order from Amazon. TWO 4 inch by 2 inch bar code stickers are slapped right on top of the book cover.....I can't give this as a gift now and I have the great hassle of dealing with Amazon to replace and/or return it.
