NOTE: I purchased this item on Amazon for full price. I try to write helpful, unbiased and insightful reviews because I also read reviews prior to making my own buying decisions. I notice many reviews lack helpful information, are not well written or give poor reviews based on not reading directions or failing to read the product details prior to purchasing. Writing valuable reviews helps pay it forward.
- how engaging these books are!!!
- information is just right. Not too much.
- not overly textbook or boring
- amazing photographs and graphics
- my kids absorbs the information and have practically memorized it all because this book is so well done
We do not love:
- The binding is faulty and the pages eventually detach and fall out over time. We keep taping them back in.
This has happened with multiple of these books, and it is frustrating. And this is with gentle use. We expect more from National Geographic and hope they remedy this.
He was interested in this book enough that we could read nearly all the text without getting bored. (He is not yet reading but listened to me read it all.) For younger kids or kids not as interested in space, you could simply name each planet/object and maybe read a few facts from the text.
Buy a different book. Very disappointed.

I will be honest though and say it hasn't gripped my children's attention very much. But I think that's because they're 5 and this book is a little bit too factual for them, when it's not a very keen interest for them.
This book will be fab when we need to learn about space, and I can imagine it would be a brilliant book for any young ones who do have a big interest in space.
Despite my children's current lack of interest in our I still gave it 5 stars, because from a parents perspective I know this is a great book and will one day be enjoyed.
After some searching I found this series (I am an ex- Primary teacher) and it seemed ideal: graded levels, lovely pictures, short chunks of text, punchy attractive presentation. I bought several on different topics - and she was thrilled. Has already re-read this one more than once!
Definitely recommend this.
I would not suggest this as the introductory book, but is very nice as an add on. Thanks.
