Great informative/entertaining pop up book for a mineral-crazy 7 year old mohandas My son is crazy about learning about minerals, metals, and mining. He went through the book in a couple of days and refers back to it from time to time. Great book!. Great art work and message I love Kate Petty's books. They are visually a treasure and the educational content is wonderful.I will say that I think this items must have been opened or returned because there was one pop up item that was broken, which was unfortunate.
