The kids liked it, nothing too exciting until they began to flip through the pages. Nice quick articles about things around their world. They were much more engaged when they began to see how many different topics were covered.

I purchased this book for the intended audience of my adult self (38 year old female), and I am beyond pleased with its quality. It would probably be best for kids ages 8 to 12, but the topics are interesting enough such that people of all ages can have fun reading it. Each question is engagingly answered and there is a thoughtfully chosen hands-on activity for each topic . Seriously, great job to the team that put this together. Also, the binding and print quality is really nice. I read Highlights as a kid, and I'm really happy the company is still making such great books.

The Book of How is OK, but I could swear I ordered The Book of Things to Do. I guess my great-granddaughter who is turning 11 will get a lot out of either.

I purchased two of these for Christmas gifts so they have not been gifted yet. However, I am really happy with the quality of the information in the books, the illustrations and the quality of the pages and the covers. The topics really are answers to questions kids ask and the explanations are complete and age appropriate. I highly recommend this book. I purchased this for two boys - seven and nine.
