My main complaint about this series, in general, is the meandering layout of the text. The pages offer a lot of information without much structure making it difficult to read aloud. We also had to frequently reach for the computer to search out more information. I like the way it promoted learning and discussion, but it does not really work as a read aloud in the traditional sense.
We are road tripping to Canada in August so we ended up focusing the most on the August page. My kids were equal parts horrified by the "quirky Canadian foods" and delighted that "freezies" are also available in Canada. We also loved the map in the back for helping us get our barrings.
This book offers a lot. We loved the perky illustrations and there is no doubt we learned a lot.
