All that being said, this is basically a story of June going to Africa, and the rest of the team finding the individual letters that spell A F R I C A on each page using the enclosed magnifying glass. As they go around the world finding the letters they experience the animals and other features common to the areas they visit and it ends up being a decent overall read. Not the best book ever put to paper, but for Little Einsteins fans it will delight them. Since the toys are no longer being produced, your child will even love playing with the little "Rocket" without the book. The binding on the book is also solid, and I've had to perform zero repairs other than ones caused by an over-anxious little reader.
So the concept is that you find letters from various places and those letters spell out the place where June is hiding. Sorry for the spoiler :) but it's A-F-R-I-C-A.
The places they visit are
So the first letters spell Africa, right? But no! In the book, they find different letters on the pages with the names of the places ("A" is found in France, for example). The editor missed that, I guess.
So this is more of a rant than a dislike of the book. It's fine for a 4-year-old. It just bugs me is all! ;)
That being said, my 2.5 year old son had such a hard time keeping the cord from the rocket out of his way as he flipped pages that he ripped the pages. Frustrating.
For those that purchase the book for younger hands, I recommend cutting Rocket's bungee cord, even if there is a slight risk Rocket could get misplaced.
The only reason I didn't rate it '5' is that the cord that connects the magnifier to the book tore the top of the page the first day. Certainly could be because my grandson is 3 and still handles things awkwardly. I guess it is a toss up between a ripped page and a lost magnifier!
