5.0 out of 5 stars A Book For Practically Anyone Reviewed in the United States on April 10, 2022
“I was skeptical that this book could actually be for nearly anyone. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! I gave this book to my 8-year-old nephew who couldn’t put it down. He even brought it into the restaurant and didn’t want to leave it in the car. Meanwhile, his arborist uncle spotted it on his seat and picked it up, and then his uncle couldn’t put it down either. Definitely a beautiful and informative book. And it makes a lovely gift.”
