These books are SO cute!! lol It's a really cool simple way to learn a little bit about different things. :) :)

Our son received this as a gift on his fourth birthday. It quickly became a favorite. It is essentially an introductory biology text book, broken down for much younger readers.

I liked this book because it taught me new things and was entertaining at the same time. Also because it taught me facts about how things in the body works and how you can keep yourself healthy. Another reason is because it talked about differant types of animals and how plants and trees grow.
Gives clear introductory information about biology and its related terms and concepts in a precise, easy-to-read manner. The illustrations are reminiscent of the anime style, so while they are clever and "hip" now, they will likely be considered outdated and old-fashioned in a few years.

Explains the basics of biology. Although a children's book with cutesy drawings and writing, it is surprisingly informative for people like me who don't know anything about mitochondria, ribosomes, protists and keratin.
Love it! My only wish is that the section on life showed more clearly how the subgroups fit into the main groupings.

So far SO AWESOME!!!!!! If you are looking for a book with humor and education this is the winner!!!!!!!
