To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
What an I credibly difficult rating to leave for this journal. I love the concept and both my daughter and I loved the actual book. The only reason I purchased the book was because it was listed at readding level 5-7 years old. There are very few 5 year olds who would not be frustrated with the content. At best, this is for kids in grade 2 and up.
I can't say enough about how awesome this book is! My daughter loves science and this book is so helpful in teaching kids how to think and how to ask good questions. I recommended this book to my daughters school who now use it in the classroom too. This isn't just a book with some experiments in it, this book sets the stage for great minds to consider the world around them and to find out how and why it works.
I bought this, along with the Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere workbooks to supplement learning during Covid. It helps that my daughter already loves the picture and chapter books. These are a great way to include STEM subjects without it feeling like school and while being fun ... with little work on the parent's side.
The book starts out with an overview of Ada's story followed by a list of items that are useful for being a scientist. What follows are pages of prompts puzzles and projects that celebrate architecture. We especially loved the fact or fiction section about ladybugs (my daughter's favorite insect).
We trade off between the three workbooks, so we've still got plenty to do going into the school year. If I were not using these specifically to supplement school, I would happily hand them off to my daughter to explore at will. And if we actually start in-person school and stick with it for a couple weeks, that's exactly what I plan to do.
