Dawkins' new book aimed at children is a winner, I'm only a quater way in but its a delightful read and kids should love it.

Very factual, and each chapter starts with a question which then is answered on an easy to understand scientific level.

For those of you with kiddies in your life, a good buy and an even better read.  I'm keeping this one for the grandkids (I can p*ss off the possibly religious daughter in law).

I recently read and enjoyed it very much myself.

Flipped through it at EB ... very well illustrated iirc.
