To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm not a child.. enjoying the large colourful thicker pages in a hardback. Whoever reads this series is likely to find it immensely pleasurable and generally informative, a!though I have not fact checked them..just enjoying the snippets I get to read.
The book is engaging and have fun stuff to attracts the young readers. But some of the facts are basically wrong or far from accuracy. The cost of 1g of Saffron is completely off compared to gold or some mis-information about penicillin ... there are just a few we found out in the first 50 pages or so. The authors or publisher need someone to fact check !
My 9 year old absolutely loves this book. He picked it up and couldn't stop reading it. Facts are illustrated clearly. They are written in short bursts so even your reluctant readers find it accessible and easy to read.
Has a lot of interesting facts about various foods.
Brilliant book. I was not expecting such a quality for this price. Fact are proper facts not just repeats of basics already heard facts. I surprised myself browsing through the book after the kids went to bed and read it for a good hour. Simple processes are very well and simply explained. I am now looking to buy the other ones if the collection.
