    This PagePerfect Nook Book is imperfect. It has been scanned in

    This PagePerfect Nook Book is imperfect. It has been scanned in so poorly the text is nearly impossible to read - the text is faded and uneven (looks like a 10th-generation Xerox copy). Shame on the publisher!

    Should have read 1st review

    The drawing are black and white... and text is blurry and difficult to read. Was counting on the Peterson name. Shame on me for not reading sample in the store first. And shame on you if you purchase it too.

    Great book!

    I bought this title for my 3 year old son, but, I just can't put it down! Now we go around the yard looking for insects to identify. I love it and it's easy to use. Mommy
