This book is loud and busy. It has lots of bold text with vibrant colors. The information is broken up into smaller boxes across the pages making it easier to read and digest. My 4 year old loves it and I rather enjoy reading it to him.
Bough for my preschooler who recently became obsessed with volcanoes and other earth-science things. Great book with lots of pictures and facts. Nat Geo does a great job with their kids series and this one didn’t disappoint.
