We used this in our study of, can you believe it, caves. I know, we're weird.

Anyways, this book was great. It presented the material clearly and had nice illustrations to help them further understand. After reading it they spent hours drawing pictures of all sorts of caves and caverns.

You could easily spend several days/weeks going through the information here and expanding it with further books, activities and pictures. As with all of Gail Gibbons books I try to find actual photos of the things she illustrates. We even took this with us to explore some caves and the boys were able to identify things based on what they learned from this book.

Great book for younger kids! We read it before we visited the nearby caverns - think it helped them understand more - and appreciate it more!

We already liked Gail Gibbons's style -- we have her book "The Planets". She is an author who can write science for the very young and illustrate it in a way so that parents can become the teachers.

The reading level on this book might be kindergarten, but much younger children will understand the text and the illustrations. Thsi book is a keeper.

Given that this is an informational book, I expected to find lots of info about caves and caverns, clearly described and detailed. The text is often confusing and raises more questions than it actually answers. This confusion is compounded by the artwork. The illustrations are appealing to the eye and well suited for children, but they do not work particularly well with this topic. The pictures that accompany the text are often confusing and do not interact well with the written word. (Not to mention the fact that all people represented in the art are white.) Actual photos might have been a better choice, esp. considering the age level. If you know a child who is interested in this topic and really wants to learn something about caves and caverns, this is not the book.
