There are pages on healthy eating and numbers (counting, multiplying, special numbers etc), musical instruments, flags (only a small selection), scientists and inventors (again only a small selection), and many more.
I like the 10 top pages (10 longest river, 10 smallest countries etc)
There are some stories, like the tortoise and the hare, the ant and the grasshopper.
The content also covers some history, like vikings, ancient Americans, native Americans...
I took a star out because I think the book is rather American-heavy in general.
Otherwise, a great book for young curious minds.
I would say the reading level was fairly easy for him , but introduced a lot of new words in the nature of the book. It’s encouraging at that age to be able to read information without struggling too much over words .
I liked the fact that short stories/ fables were included in context & so many topics covered. I thoroughly recommend.
