Each page has an appropriate amount of text, but only a single very simple image - which is not typical for children's books so seems kind of cheap. This book including images was probably assembled in 5 minutes in Illustrator. The images on each page are basically clip art copy/pasted to each page. From an educational point of view, it's great to use consistent imagery with subtle differences (red ball for mass, green/yellow arrow for force), but "the ball is in the air" vs "the ball is on the ground" is really subtle. Since you're just using clip art, why not use a "line" for ground instead of a flat 2D ball with a 3D shadow? Then you could bring another color into the page! Or perhaps that was intentional to keep printing costs dirt cheap by only using 2-3 distinct colors on each page. In fact, the last page has one of the more interesting images: it's adds 3 more pieces of clip art and 2 more colors and doesn't match any of the other pages.
My child definitely enjoyed seeing the red ball for mass, but due to the simple design every page ends up looking the same. This might have been better done as flash cards, and use a nice sturdy cardboard so your child can't easily destroy the pages.
I have given it to my mother-in-law and my nanny to read with my little one while they are with him, and they have both told me that they were learning right along with him. I would recommend any of Chris Ferrie's books, but this and Quantum Physics are my personal favorites.
