If it grabs your eye, if it sparkles, twinkles or shines anywhere in the universe, you might find it discussed in this book. This is a trivia book, full of color and glitz; but it does not provide much depth in any one subject. Rather, it is designed to intrigue and possibly to lead young minds down other paths of discovery.
In an age when the eye is pulled quickly from one subject to another through electronic means, a print version must be eye-catching and appealing. I think that is what the authors intended for this work.
The reader will find a great many fascinating subjects from rocks, history, science, splurges, to lights and beyond. Young readers will enjoy looking at the pictures, and more advanced readers will find fascinating tidbits to share with their friends. I recommend it for elementary and middle school libraries. /:c
