Verified Purchase
I bought this for my son even before we saw the exhibit it is tied to at the local science museum. He got it in 1st grade and pretty much likes looking at the pictures, but now that he is starting to read it is opening up more information to him. There is a nice balance of science without killing the main attraction to kids (and most people) which is Star Wars. For now he is just reading captions, but if his love of Star Wars continues (as I expect it will), he will end up knowing more than me as he devours books for information on the subject.

In terms of quality, it is softcover so it has gotten some folds and bends from laying on the floor or being slept on in bed, but it is a solid build, great color photos, and tons of information.
