My 8 year old son has a number of the books in this series now and he absolutley loves them. He dips in and out when the mood takes him or a topic is discussed at school.

Very well written for this age group as the descriptions seem to stick in their heads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for elementary schools kids 26 May 2015
By Raj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book for elementary schools kids.. ..just enough information to get them interested and get a dialogue going. This will not bore them down. A must have for parents for night time readings.. short and sweet...but be ready for Q&A from the kids.

I came across one of the books in this series in the gift shop at the Franklin Museum and thought it would be great for my son who just started college. He has some tough classes that require a lot of memorization and these books are perfect for that... takes tough topics and breaks them down into terms easier to understand. They have great visuals too. Ended up buying 3 of them "The Period Table", "Chemistry" and "The Human Body". His study partner loved them and I bought a set for her too. Great books!

we found our 1st Basher book in Ho Chi Minh City airport 2 years ago & bought it for our son to take on holiday. Boy, he loved it so much we have bought almost every other book ever written in the series because not only does he love them, but also his little sister! They are now 8 & 10 years old and have so much fun while they learn...we thoroughly recommend all of these great little books.

My 6 year old daughter loves this book. She always is asking questions about how our bodies work. This book is very informative but the content isn't too difficult for her to understand. My 4 year old even likes this book.
