Great book. My son loves it
Reviewed in the United States on April 3, 2016
Great book. My son loves it. Nice pictures, informative text. I have one complaint, though. The pages detach very easily from the binding. My son is not rough on books at all, but this is the second copy of this book he's owned and 90% of the pages have come loose from the binding. I feel like I am constantly having to tape them back in, only to have more pages fall out. In fact, I'm getting ready to order a third copy because of this (he's a bit of an ocean fanatic, so he likes having this book in is collection). I'd say it was just a fluke, but not only has it happened to the two books with this title he's owned (and I expect it to happen with the third, once he gets it), but it's also happened to both his first AND second copies of The First Big Book of Why (his second copy isn't bad enough to need replacing...yet). So, buyer beware, it's a great book context-wise, but it's very, very poorly constructed.
UPDATE: My son has now had his THIRD copy of this book for four months. Ten pages have already detached from the binding and have been taped back in. I suspect more pages will be falling out soon. Great book, but I think the company needs to make sure the binding is more secure for future publishings. I'm knocking a star off my review based on construction alone.
