This book gives you a lot to look at, with pages upon pages of cute little drawings and short paragraphs of just about nearly everything.

I think that this could also be a great jumping off point for them to go off and expand what they know through the Internet and projects.

I'm only kind of reading this: my 2-year-old likes to have it read to her during her afternoon snack sometimes! She likes the Brainwaves.
