In a few pages, this book clearly tells about climbing the earth's highest peak, provides a lot of really interesting factoids about Mt. Everest, maps the way up the mountain and displays some of the equipment high mountain climbers must carry. The reader will also learn about how mountains are formed, a bit about the Sherpas and their reverence for the mountain and many other interesting things.
Both my son and I have enjoyed this very much. It is a good basic book for kids who have learned to read and are moving to more challenging subjects. That this subject is interesting as well is a plus.
I couldn't decide if I liked the illustrations or not. No photos, just Eric Carle-style cut-outs (but much more realistic and finely detailed than Carle's work). The illustrations work well and are detailed, but I would have enjoyed a couple of photographs of the mountain.
