The layout was well done with plenty of graphics to capture the visual attention while presenting the information in an educational yet easy to read manner. Using Superman and his powers to explain scientific concepts such as gravity, flight, etc really brings the information to life and makes what could be very dense, difficult to comprehend concepts manageable for a wide variety of age levels.
It’s a bit long for those on the younger end of the spectrum but it is thankfully broken up into smaller sections and topics so you could easily go over it in small bites to avoid attention overload. It is definitely one of those books that you can use in a wide variety of ways and return to time and again without boredom. It’s a must have for teachers and parents particularly if you then watch the latest Superman movies and apply the information from the book to what they see so you can increase the fun. Who says Hollywood can’t be educational? :-)
It contains historical information on the practical application of scientific knowledge that result in important advances for humanity. It is not only our children to learn and be well informed, increase their knowledge and culture, but they can visualize the importance of generating knowledge is a collective effort where many people have participated. Accordingly, we can also cultivate the values of cooperation, teamwork, perseverance, contribution, creative application of scientific knowledge, among others, at par the children are astonished at the practical and novel applications of science.
