I love reading these fact tracker books. Here is my wish, hardback and color of all of these. This author has the knack of writing non-fiction (well and of course, fiction too) for children. I thought this was fun and interesting to read and wasn’t too dumbed down. I really enjoy reviewing these and they would be more popular as a book checkout if they were larger, perhaps even able to open flat (this would be good for the magic trick one!). I realize the whole idea is to keep them affordable, but I want all of these as an easier to use real library resource.
