    "I found this book adequate but not exceptional. I picked it up for my young son and he seemed to enjoy it. However, I found the illustrations a bit weak and the book itself didn't have a lot of facts. I'm currently looking for another science book for my son."

    "I was looking for a kid's science book, for my young nephew who is just starting the first grade, something that might help him get an edge on the other kids, as well as provide an entertaining read. I looked around for awhile, and settled on 'Little Penguin' by Jonathan London. I found it to be cute as well as educational, and while my nephew didn't necessarily assess its educational value, he loved the book. Worth every penny."

    "If you're into looking at water, this is the book for you. My family enjoyed it, since we live in Arizona. Only bad thing, though, is the paper is so shiny it's sometimes hard to actually look at the pictures."

    "How could you go wrong with The Cat in The Hat? I mean really? This is greatly one of the best ever and I am pretty biased because it has been an incredible part of me growing up in my childhood. This goes hand in hand with Sesame Street and hands down the greatest of all time."
