Another educational keeper. Although new books from the Nature of God series are awesomely chock-full of information they are rather long-winded to be take in all at once. My toddler was not captivated but I think a science older kiddo would be in bliss. I think the changes in the color and fonts make for an attractive read. Lastly I was reviewing an advanced reader copy so I cannot comment on the bonus DVD that would be included with a real book, but I am sure it is neat.

*Thanks to Zondervan for providing an ARC for review.*
