I first used this several years ago with a 3rd grader. He was a good solid reader and was able to handle the text himself. He very much enjoyed creating his own notebook and doing the easy experiments.

After coming back to this book more recently with another child, I found that it did not contain enough information and projects to satisfy her and so I had to supplement with some additional material. She is quite interested in astronomy thanks in part to her older siblings. There are plenty of good resources out there on observing the night sky which can be great fun.

I recommend this book as a good elementary textbook introduction to astronomy, but feel free to supplement with other resources which are readily available on line or in a library.
