DragonflyMichiganAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Surpassed my expectations!March 6, 2014DragonflyMichiganAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wow! I never expected so much from a book that has a cartoon character on the cover. I used this as our first book for science this year with my 2nd and 4th graders. They loved it! My son still asks if he can grab it off the shelf and look at it. The vocabulary was perfect for my children's ages and didn't leave me having to explain a lot the way subsequent books we've used have done. It is methodical and precise. It answered many common questions including: Was there an ice age? I am so happy that we started here. It gave us a fantastic foundation to build on as we moved on to other books on fossils, archeology, and paleontology. (We are currently reading "Living Fossils" also purchased here at CBD which I HIGHLY recommend!) It would not be necessary to use other books, but this book got us so interested in the subject that we wanted to keep going. It gives a great foundation for questioning the secular interpretation of the data. Though this book is simple enough for a second grader, it was intellectually satisfying for me as well. It didn't leave holes and gaps for me to have to explain to the kids. In fact, my husband took it to work when we were finished with it in order to show someone who was asking him how the flood was possible. I also recommended it to a friend who purchased it for her small group that had questions about creation vs. evolution. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone young or old looking for simple answers to big questions about origins, fossils, coal formation, dating methods, the flood, and the ice age.

My 10 year old enjoys reading this completely her own. An 8 year old who likes geology and can read well is going to have no problem either. The best part is all the pictures; they match what's being talked about in the text and are really well done. Even my 3 year old wants me to snuggle with him and look at Mr. Hibb and his crazy adventures!
The writing does have a tendency to slip into school textbook style, except when the authors remembered it was supposed to be about Mr. Hibb, but it's always a quality textbook.
Besides the illustrations, the best feature of this book is the Hands On Activities. A dozen times throughout, there are simple things for kids to do picturing what they're learning or even recreating a process.
There's a fair amount of worldview thrown into the book, always presuming the Bible is completely trustworthy. They leave it to other books to make the case for this.
The book discusses rock types and other basic things enough to get a good idea but spends most of its space discussing the World-Wide Flood. All kinds of watery processes are known to interact with rock and these are looked at in colorful detail. The sections on dinosaurs during the Flood and glacial action afterwards are particularly fascinating.
The one area I wish they'd been more careful to address is the Geologic Column. It is the strongest case the Evolutionists have and Creationists have no reason to ignore it.
Altogether, I'm putting this at the top of my "suggested resources" list. It does a great job reaching its young target audience and beyond. In fact, any person who doesn't feel silly having the main character be a four-legged grasshopper is going to learn a lot because you "see" how things can happen.
--Oh, yes, right away I needed to get out some tape to reattach the glossary at the back. Whatever stitching machine they used let a whole section fall out.
