My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If I had to gift something to a very curious child, I cannot think of a more appropriate gift than this book. From wheels, pulleys, zippers, engines to the touchscreen, smartphones, 3D printers and drones, this book has them all illustrated and explained. Even better they are neatly grouped together and categorized into the followings which make things easier:
– Electricity & Automation
Neither too technical nor too basic, this book is filled with big and colorful illustrations which are still very concise and easy to understand. The illustrations can feel somewhat limiting in some cases but for most of the book does an excellent job of explaining how things work. Storytelling-wise, I enjoyed the humor infused within the narrative but felt there was a little too much of it. I feel that maybe the Wolly Mammoth needs to be toned down a little bit.
