Do you agree or disagree with the reviews below? Why not write your own?
I really love books that challenge the mind, but this one surpassed my expectations. Not only do you use your mind to search for objects, not only do you learn new vocabulary, but it also gives an overview of life from ancient times to modern times. See how the Egyptians lived, what food the Greeks dined on, go aboard a Viking ship, right up to going to the movies at the drive-in. A super book! Usually we read through books like this (search and find) very quickly, but this one I've been reading with my daughter for almost a month (age 4) and plan to use it again when we study those time periods in history. Definitely a KEEPER!
