I purchased this book for my son on a trip I took while in grad school. It became his favorite bedtime story since he loves anything to do with science and nature. We read it AT LEAST three times a night for several months. Even now he uses knowledge he gained from this book to explain ocean ecosystems, spell words when we play Scrabble, and as passwords for his computer. When I had a second son, it was the first book we bought for the baby.
