Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Horn Book

The approach is visually appealing.

NSTA Recommends

This is an informative book that will engage readers in a tactile way as they explore the text. . . . Some of the illustrations are labeled, providing additional nontextual information for readers. This book would be a nice inclusion in a classroom or school library because it builds on the natural curiosity of young children. . . . While the information is very general, it's appropriate for younger children who have questions such as "What is it like deep underground?" or "What is at the bottom of the ocean?"
