Kids love an adventure and parents love seeing willing readers and able learners. Lonely Planet Kids know how to bring all these elements together with their fun children’s range of books. We have been lucky enough to have a peep at one of the latest book series “Let’s Explore” taking in the topics of Deserts, Mountains and Cities.
Let’s Explore Deserts, Mountains and Cities
The books are packed with activities, challenges and 250 stickers on the book theme. Each book takes the reader on an adventure with Marco and Amelia, follow their path through the highest mountain range, the driest desert or the busiest cities. Every page is interactive, you may be asked to colour, shown how to draw, unravel a word search or find the right stickers to complete the picture. This is learning made fun for young children and a great way to learn about the world we live in.
What we liked
Apart from the obvious educational benefits on offer here what really impressed me was the easy use of language, sharing information through clever illustrations and just enough easy to understand words for young children to grasp what is happening and stay engaged. This book is perfect for visual learners and a good challenge for young readers too.
How we used the books
We used the books to help our activity hour out on the farm, finding something to tie in with many of the learning activities we do. Every time the children were drawn to the illustrations and challenges, from following desert trails to drawing sheep. I was thrilled with how like mountain sheep our Jacobs sheep and pigmy goats look, everyone can be an artist by following the “Let’s explore” guides to drawing.
I’m struggling to find anything negative to say about these gorgeous books, if I’m being very picky I’d say the sticker pages could do with being a little stronger, little fingers are inclined to rip them in excitement if not taking care, but really forewarned and this is not a problem.
