There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This was on the first page I looked at, and as I looked through the book, there were also other questionable topics presented as 'Facts" to kids.
I am returning this book.
With that said we also have come across subjects that have not been age-appropriate and maybe not at all appropriate for certain households. There was a section about necromancy, ouija boards, haunted houses, palm reading, tarot cards, and the likes. There also have been other sections where we had to use the power of distraction or skim over some things for the kids. Not sure why or how these random subjects happened to find themselves in this book but they are there. Most of the book is great and has interesting content about animals, nature, senses, etc. I'm just writing this review to give other parents a heads up about this too.
I had a mom thank me for the gift a few weeks after giving it because she said that the book made her boy excited to read!
This book was so much fun. I thought that it would actually be perfect to get for my dad because he is a trivia buff. Excellent book for old and young alike!!! Would definitely purchase again.
Top international reviews
But she browsed through its once or twice and refuses to pick it up since.
Too much text and a lack of funny graphics I suppose.
Bought for a noisy child who now does a 1 hour, car journey with endless "did you know that..." comments. He loves it... Parents not so much because of the "hey, did you..." (parents) "STOP TALKING!!!)
only jesting, its a fantastic book for young enquring minds. Full of fascinating info and very well presented
