    Comments about Extreme Planet Not for Parents:

    I bought this book for my five year old son for Christmas. While he can't read yet, he loves to look at the pictures and we read the interesting and funny facts together. He has gone back to the book many times this year and I can see that it will grow with him as he gets older and his reading improves. I would recommend this book for anyone from ages 5 to 12+
