Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Some books that attempt to be about ALL THE THINGS are actually disappointingly light -- lots of big pictures and few pages, and text that could fit on a single flap of a cereal box. This book really is jam-packed with all sorts of things you'd expect a kid to learn in school (but don't, as many parents learn to their chagrin), presented in a way that makes it fun to read and talk about.
