To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Super cool book! Found this book in a store & wanted to buy it, but decided to get on Amazon to save a few dollars. I am an 8th grade science teacher & just like to read science stuff over the summer... but sometimes I want a book with pictures and one that is easy on the eyes- this book is a fun & good read for a science nerd, but nothing too complicated that I couldn’t use this to help teach as well. Besides the things you can learn in the book, the book has nice graphics and a really nice layout for its format and presentation. For $20 bucks, this book is a steal!! Ecology is super interesting- get this book if you like science!!!
It is a very nice book, as all DK books are. Except it is a bit advanced for what I intended, I planned to use it for an advanced 5th graders homeschooling, but this is more like high school level. It has the vibe of a high school textbook, so not quite what I was going for. But it is very nice and full of info.
Rented it from a Library, and I liked it enough I wanted my own. A lot of information to read, and a lot of bright colors and photos. Book has 350 pages in it, it's very large. Arrived in perfect condition and no damages.
