"The minute I opened [Wild Reads], my kids, aged 8 and 5, devoured them They are filled with colorful, very detailed drawings to interest the non-readers, and have large print for young readers. The books don't talk down to the kids, however. There are plenty of big words to learn, but each book comes with a handy glossary in the back These books help make nonfiction more accessible to children and show that nonfiction can be just as fun and interesting as fiction." --Wired Magazine, GeekDad "Children will be fascinated by the descriptions...the pictures are superb." --San Francisco Book Review
