I will be purchasing some of these for gifts as well!
Looking forward to reading this one over and over again!!!
Note: This book is clearly intended to be read to new babies (one line says something like "you can't speak yet"), but my 3-year-old and 8-year-old love it anyway (and unfortunately, I did not know about it when they were babies, so it's not just nostalgia that's got them hooked).
I saw all the great reviews and purchased this book-- but there were places where the author didn't give any information even though he could have-- like saying "stratosphere" instead of "stratothingy..." Seriously? Just fill in with the right word. My kids should know what it's actually called.
There's also a place where he says that animals can't talk (actually they CAN talk, we just don't speak their language)-- the book just didn't mesh for me and I didn't want to read it to my kids.
It was very basic overall without much information and seemed to be lacking in substance.
I returned it.
