What a cute, beautiful and fun approach to teaching about the origin of the universe. My daughter (3.5 yo) found it engaging and easy to understand for the most part. The recursive way of telling the story made the steps make sense to her in a way other books have not. We're strongly atheist but I don't think there is anything in this book that would insult most religious parents who want to expand their children's horizons a bit.

Pros:
- Easy for young children to grasp.
- Fun and engaging.
- Beautiful art.

Cons:
- Like a lot of these books, it subtlely elevates humans above other animals as if we're the pinnacle of evolution.

I don't normally love books that build upon each page, making you repeat phrases over and over. The little old lady who swallowed a fly style... but this one has such great illustrations, the repeating language is building upon events so it helps solidify the topic... it's a good read about a complicated topic.

I bought this book because I loved the title, and delighted in the idea of sharing a theoretical model with my little one! Though it's true that the words are a bit confusing to parse at first, it's really just a momentary confusion—the split presentation of information is something that will grow with the child. Across the page spreads, there's singsong prose, sometimes venturing into visual poetry, to keep the young child entertained. And on those same page spreads are informational paragraphs, tucked into the corners, for the edification of the more advanced reader. I am not a huge fan of the way the author was illustrated, but it hasn't interfered with my child's enjoyment of the book.

I wanted to love this book. The first and last page have a great message, "you are as old as the stars," and the last two pages are beautifully illustrated. However, the story itself and illustrations throughout the main book are disappointing. What you see on the cover is the best of it… black, with lots of yellow, orange, and red starbursts. Honestly, it looks like the kind of artwork a toddler does with finger paint in preschool. Yes, it's space, but they could have played a lot more with color. There's nothing to hold a child's (visual) interest, nor are the words colored correctly to contrast well and stand out from the background. Reading it reminds me of reading a badly-done webpage with red letters and a black background. Ouch. Personally, I don't find myself wanting to read this book with my son, so I doubt he enjoys it much, either.

Each page has 2 versions of a "story" or information about "the big bang," and the toddler version of the "story" is just repetitious… the sentences build on each other, rather like the 12 days of Christmas, and the words mean very little. The illustrations do nothing to add to the meaning, either.

I don't understand why they couldn't stick with the theme on the first and last pages of the book… that's obviously what people are looking for. The information on each page (for older kids) is fine, but reads like a bad textbook, and I think a kid who is old enough to understand it would be WELL beyond this type of a kids' book anyway, and better served by a book with real illustrations of space and more kid friendly explanations.

Perfect for all ages. I wasn't sure about this at first because the illustrations are not scientifically accurate. My son didn't mind at all. He is captivated by the artwork and prose that truly captures the beauty of the real universe without the need for metaphysics. The main story is age appropriate and educational (he's 4), but the book also includes facts for older kids and adults. I learned quite a bit reading this book! I've purchased quite a few kids' books about evolution recently, and this is my favorite.

We love this book. My daughter pretty much has it memorized and we take turns reading it to each other. She likes that she can change the lyrics of twinkle twinkle little star

"twinkle twinkle little star
now I know what you are..."

She also loves the part about breathing air the dinosaurs breathe. She's brought this book to school to share several times

We use several books together to begin a discussion of evolution and the formation of life and the Earth. My son was 3 or 4 when we started. He's 5 now and he kind of understands. We also go to museums and watch nature shows. It's a process. No one book is going to do the whole job for you.

The one thing i don't love about this book is how many times the lines are repeated and it gets to be a long drawn out thing. Sometimes I just end up skipping a few lines.

Love the way this book ties you in with the creation of the universe. I always loved the line “we are all made of star dust”, and this book takes the journey of our solar system’s past and brings it full circle to wrap you up and make you feel included, as we all should.
