    Fantastic Book for Kids

    I think all the books in the Eyewitness series are fantastic. My son loves them! I especially like this one about the Ocean because the topic is so accessible and already of interest to kids. (others are about topics like the Renaissance or World War II) They do a great job of providing a lot of information in an interesting way. Each group of two pages has a different sub topic. So the book really covers a lot. There are a lot of pictures as well. The book also includes a CD which we have not used. I am not sure that is necessary. Overall, I would recommend this book
