Aimed at 'kids of all ages' this could prove a bit too much for the younger kids on their own. It should come with a PGR rating. LOL Icon
This isn't because there is anything wrong with it by any means, just that there is so much in there, it can get a bit overwhelming for the little ones, and may need Mum or Dad to help guide them through it, and skip over some of the 'extras' on each page.
The diagrams are amazing and very fully-featured, and the "Universe Fact File" at the back is crammed with information about our solar system, but something very important to keep in mind is that the data in this book was compiled back in 2000, so is a few years short of current. This is not so big for the star-maps, which change on scales of decades and centuries, but the fact files are not suitable for research data relating to any missions, probes, or spacecraft launched since the millenium.
Still, for a reference book suitable for kids to use if they have an early interest in any facet of space, this is surely well worth it. Cheap at this price, it is a big book with plenty going for it, and an excellent companion to the Children's Atlas of the World, both of which are excellent additions to any kid's library.

Product reviews for listing 343: Make Shapes 2
Brand / Author: Gerald Jenkins and Anne Wild

Product image for Make Shapes 2Few of these models could be imagined by looking at the flat 'nets' but glue them together step by step and the shapes appear. Once the models are made, there are many ways to decorate them; Paint, felt tip pens, coloured pencils or enamel can all be used, or invent your own decorations.

These models make fine decorations, and they can be hung from threads to make attractive mobiles.
