Professor Dawkins I second comment 27. I love the iPad app. Each chapter can be made into a simpler version for younger students or students who do not have a good science background.

I am the librarian at a Middle School with 11-14 year olds. Because of demographics and poverty 75% of my students read below grade level. They will not be able to read your book successfully. These students absolutely love science books and science. For various reasons their families do not read to them at home. I have purchased hard copies to donate to the library. I am quite pleased that the iPad app has allowed me to download the book before it is available in the US!

Books like this are so incredibly important. I live in Colorado and because of the standardized testing Science and Social Studies are getting cut drastically. Thank you for writing it!
