If your kid is interested in science this series is a great option. The text is easy to understand for kids 8 years old and up. The pictures are really nice and colorful. The layout is smart and neat. And the topics are varied and interesting.
A rock is lively contains a great amount of information about rocks as big as an asteroid, and as tiny as a grain of sand. Rocks can be so different and have so many different uses. Man uses and has always used rocks as tools, weapons, for construction, art, and more. Animals use rocks too. All of this can be discovered in this book. Highly recommended.
We also read and enjoyed A nest is noisy some time ago.
