It's a lovely book, but -- based solely on the reaction of my just-turned-four book lover who wants to be an astronaut/basketball player -- I'd say it will go over better with the older kids. There's a lot of interesting, subtle, and funny stuff going on in the illustrations -- but it's like observing an ant farm in terms of the scale. The town-continent-solar system-galaxy progression is really nifty, but a lot of the time, distance, and really big numbers are just too abstract. Having the setting in Australia is a really nice feature, since Earth's continents seems to be a topic of interest and comprehensible. I'm glad I have the book, but it will probably be resting on the shelf for a while for my guy.

With vibrant illustrations and accurate text even adults will enjoy it and be left wanting to know more. I have given a copy to everyone I know who has children!

This story is a great way to give children how huge the universe is and our small part of it.

This used book was listed as "like new" but it really wasn't in very good shape. The pages were torn then taped and several pages were folded in several places.
I absolutely love this book. I am a teacher of both English as a Second Language and the gifted, and I have used it with both populations. The space pictures are beautiful, the other pictures are hilarious, and the information is both simply given and interesting. I would take exception to the rating of baby-preschool, both because I know high school students who enjoy it and because there is violence (albeit comical) in some of the pictures. For example, if you look at the playing field, you will see what appears to be a person getting decapitated with a tennis racket.
