    Listened to the audioit was fun and short Great for a family car ride.This series is jam packed full of science, so I would highly recommend it for any kid who enjoys science There were times when the science was overwhelming preachy for me There were also times when Zack used language that just did not seem natural for a boy of that age, not just vocab but phrasing that didn t sound kid like.
