Great for science. Appreciate direct nature of "facts of life."

We are 1/3 through this book. My 5 and 7 year old LOVE it and want to read from it every day. I also have really enjoyed it, the pictures are great, especially those that are magnified. They want to read some of it every day. They have said they want to be a doctor and scientist when they grow up. They asked me if they can see a real brain. It is a fascinating, great book. It makes them have big dreams for themselves, and it make me wonder what great things could be in their future! : )
It surprised me just how much my 4 year old LOVED this book. She wanted to read from it every single day.
