Gifted it to my 6 yrs old nephew. He just loves the book.

Press reviews

“In common with all Usborne titles, this book is cram-packed with information, presented clearly and informatively. Children will have great fun searching out all the flaps (over 110 of them!) and finding the entertaining pictures hidden beneath them. There is just the right blend of information and pictures, with odd snippets of humour along the way to keep their attention...This is a super introduction to science and a great way to get children involved.”
“Packed with fun and has over 110 flaps to lift... full of 'lessons' any child of eight-plus (and any adult) would find fascinating.”
“Any kids’ book that causes you, the parent, to give yourself a mental high five is a total winner. We’ll have more of these, thanks!”
