I'm not sure how to rate this one. There's some good stuff in here but it's for kids and the child I was using it for had no interest in it. The illustrations are pale and uninteresting and the text is dry. I think it's an area that really needs more books, but I'm afraid this one just doesn't do what it needs to do.
