Spot and his friends in the series are good, entertaining and educational characters for pre-schoolers. I would recommend the series as a primer for toddlers.

Matching the magnificent series by the BBC, this book is great educational material for both young and old. Would recommend it to everybody that has at least some interest in natural sciences.

This book is an excellent resource. It is very reader friendly for educators as well as parents. As an educator, I am always looking for books to recommend to parents and colleagues. This one is at the top of my list. I plan on buying other books from this series.

I'm so glad that I'm educated enough to read, children's books. Seriously, I love fun books! I THANK ALL THE EDUCATORS IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM FOR TEACHING ME TO READ!!! Now that thats done, I LOVE this book, and series! Can you imagine having the ability to read out characters of books or read yourself/others into books. Just the wildness of it all?! WOW! This is a really great series, and Brendan Fraser's voice, apparently was an inspiration for the author! I think thats worthy, of another, "WOW!" Buy this series, ya won't be disappointed.

This book is a call for all of who believe in justice to realize the necessity of education and to resist formal indoctrination ,religious racial or cultural.

Ishmael Beah was one of the ¿boy soldiers¿ forced to fight in Sierra Leone. His narrative storytelling type of writing makes this a powerful book. He was 12. He was educated. His culture was a warm and inviting one¿hardly a culture that was warlike or savage. But once the rebels overran his southwestern part of the country and he got separated from his family, he was lost. He spent lots of time trying to find his family, wandering aimlessly in the forest, sometimes alone, sometimes with other boys his age. All the villagers became afraid of *any* group of boys-- because so many were drafted both into the rebel and the regular army-- so these boys, not yet caught, got little help. They were not only searching for family and food, but also trying to avoid getting captured and made to fight. Finally, however, they too are caught up in the fight and are made to do horrible things ¿to where they became the very monsters they were originally trying to avoid. The army fed all the boys amphetamines and cocaine willy-nilly throughout the day. By the time the UN rescued them three years later, the boys were completely savage and warlike. It took almost a year in a special rehabilitation camp in Freetown before they were back close to normal and could be let loose on the public. Ishmael was chosen to go to a UN meeting as a representative showing that indeed these boys could be rehabilitated. There he met a woman living in New York who eventually adopted him after his uncle died and fighting started up in what had previously been his safe haven in the more northern Freetown. He was so afraid of being taken back into one of the armies that he smuggled himself into neighboring Guinea and called her. He also conveys, actually the best I¿ve ever seen, the split-second way things can change from good to horrible and how that affects a person psychologically.

I bought this collection of books for my 2 year old son's birthday. Although he's not quite ready to sit for the entire story, they are great, and he carries them around. My 4 year old son loves them, and my 6 year old girl enjoys them as well. We already had the Amazing Airplane book and I had wanted to get more of the series, as I thought it was fun and educational at the same time. I didn't realize there were 10 books until I came across this set. The books in this set are smaller than the regular books but they aren't too small. The truck box that they "stand" in is a little tight and difficult for little fingers, but I wouldn't have cared if the books came with out a holder, so that didn't matter to me. Getting all of the books together was much more economical than buying individual books. I'll be purchasing this set for gifts in the future.

I have purchased every one of the "my first" books and love them all, as does my grandchild. This was especially cute and she really likes it now as she is learning body parts. I would recommend the whole series.

My little boy loves this series of books. This one in particular is fun because he can kind of act out the things in the book. We read it every night before bed and he won't miss it for anything. He is almost 3 and the amount of words on each page are perfect for his attention span. It also teaches him how to behave. If ever he does something that dinosaurs shouldn't do, I can remind him that dinosaurs don't do that and he quits whatever it is. This would make a great gift as well as adding it to your own collection!

My nine year old daughter LOVES this series. They are funny books, not so educational. She doesn't like to put them down. A good value.

My little girl loves to read this book before bed. It emphasizes the difference between being an older sibling and a younger sibling. A very cute book and an easy read. It is just long enough to be considered a bedtime story, but not long enough to drag out the bedtime routine. I would say it is the perfect length. Great pictures and easy to understand language. I have a few books from the Caillou series and she loves them all. The pages are sturdy and will last a long time. Overall wonderful book. We love Caillou.

Not only does is this full of facts, but it's a fun way to brush up on varied topic. This was my 5th purchase for a gift. I am grabbing the one on history soon.
