I love the premise of this story. The fact that the author created these stories along with his son and his son's imagination makes me so joyful! But it almost seems like the author decided that the book couldn't be just fun. I think there is too much additional educational information. For example, I like the idea of having some extra vocabulary in a story. But not several per page. And I like the idea of teaching science in a fun way. But in this story, the scientific explanations of things just took away from the story. It just doesn't seem like a "real" book. It literally seems like a dad just wrote down his son's story one day and added in some big words and scientific facts to make it seem a bit more "proper"; almost like he is trying too hard. The story would have been great without all the excess stuff.
I am a book fanatic!! I used to do book reviews on my blog but I stopped when the publishers decided to close down the programs. I am faithful about reading the books quickly so the authors can get feedback as soon as possible.
