What did you like about the book? This book explores ten subjects from the inside out. Ten different illustrators each take a topic and explore it. Each category looks different due to the different illustrator. 101 wonders of the world, from animals, to everyday objects are displayed in the book. On one page is the object from the outside with text giving facts about it, and on the opposite fold out page, there is the same object with the insides detailed. This book is so full of information that it would take a very curious child a very long time to read it. I liked the classifications including “earth and space” and “buildings.” The book is sturdy, with a padded cover and the fold out pages look like they can withstand a lot of use.
