I am a big fan of Lonely Planet Kids books. They have a wide range and are so interesting and amazing. We have recently received two books from them to review. We got Dinosaur Atlas by Anne Rooney and James Gilleard and How Animals Build by Moira Butterfield and Tim Hutchinson. Both are filled with loads of fantastic facts and have some really fab illustrations, along with fold our pages and lift the flaps.
How Animals Build
This book is filled will loads of different animals and it not only tells us how they build their homes but why they do it too. On the very first page is an oak tree and it show all the animals and insects that live there. So not only do they build their own homes in the tree, they also share the tree like a block of flats.
The book covers all kinds of animals including rabbits, spiders, meerkats, caterpillars, termites, beavers, bees, birds and even sea creatures.
The boo is filled with amazing facts. Caitlin loved lifting all the flaps up to find out more about each animal. Her favourite fact was that the biggest ever birds nest made was by a pair of Bald Eagles and the nest measures a massive 2.9 meters wide and 6 meters deep! She was so thrilled to learn all these new facts and she couldn’t wait to go to school the next day and tell her teacher all about it.
This book includes some fantastic fold out maps and shows you by different area where each dinosaur came from. This book also include information on how Earth changed over the years, making different continents. Along with brilliant illustrations this book also includes loads of great photos. And quite a few actual size images, which I found fascinating.
It show us how dinosaurs became fossils, how new information on dinosaurs is being discovered all the time, all about feathered dinosaurs, dinosaurs that swam and even dinosaurs that lived in the Antarctica. This book is truly amazing and being quite frank, the best dinosaur book I have ever read. It is just filled with amazing facts, most I never even knew.
Aaron really enjoyed reading this book and at school his topic work is dinosaurs, so perfect timing o get this book. He has taken it with him to school and even the teachers are really impressed with this book.
