A serious worry is the child with small jelly fish on a plate, coupled with the statement later in the book about people eating jellyfish. A child could easily misunderstand and try to eat a random jellyfish.
The danger from jellyfish stings was not emphasized enough. Some jellyfish can kill people and pouring vinegar on the stings will not be enough to save the person.
I discovered this "book" when it was listed, along with fifty other books by the same author (although some of the books list a different author on the inside) as a free resource for homeschooling. I am both a homeschooling mom and a former elementary school teacher with a Master's degree in Literacy, so I'm always interested to see what's out there.
This book (and all the other ones in the "series") is nothing more than a collection of pictures skimmed from the internet. Typing "jellyfish" into Google images turns up most of the pictures in this book very quickly, coming from a large variety of websites. The vast majority of pictures in this book are probably being used illegally with no compensation for the owners of the images. (In any case, there are no statements in the book giving credit to the owners of the pictures used, or showing permissions for using them.)
Underneath each picture is a random fact about jellyfish. They are not organized in any fashion, and most of them are unrelated to any other information in the book. They are also NOT at a reading level appropriate for early readers, despite the "FOR KIDS! LEARN TO READ!" advertisement on the cover.
I suspect these are copied and pasted from somewhere, but I didn't search to find out where. Someone else on a review of one of the books found most of the sentences on Wikipedia.
There is no table of contents or any other non-fiction feature you'd want in a children's research book. There is no listing of sources where the facts were obtained.
My guess is that these books were copied and pasted together quickly by someone hoping to make a quick dollar off of unsuspecting consumers. (While this book was free when I purchased it, there were MANY books built exactly the same way that had a price tag attached, and I'm sure this book will not always be free.)
