Life on Earth Discoveries for Kids

Posted on April 24th, 2017

Children are inquisitive by nature. They love to explore with all their senses and ask questions at every turn. What parent doesn’t grow tired of “but why” from a toddler or endlessly shout “be careful” as they explore the world around them through active play? As children grow so their minds develop and their quest for knowledge increases. Quarto Kids specialise in finding books that fulfill this need to learn in children in an engaging and identifiable way. We have been checking out the first two books in a new non-fiction series under the umbrella heading of Life on Earth. These are Life on Earth: Human Body and Life on Earth: Farm.

Life on Earth Books

Life on Earth: Human Body and Life on Earth: Farm

Aimed at children in the early years of school, these books are designed to appeal to a curious mind. They tackle 100 frequently asked questions in each book with over 70 interactive lift – flaps for children to open. Written by Heather Alexander and illustrated by Andres Lozano they are eye catching and informative without being over complicated.

What we thought of the Life on Earth Books

The children on the farm are always a good judge of whether a book is going to appeal or not. We had a look at the farm book as part of our activity hour. These were younger preschool children and while their attention span was more limited than an older child, they still managed to identify things from the pictures and when I read the corresponding words they were interested enough to lift the flaps and find out more after a week of farm learning here. I think these books make an excellent reference to support learning on a theme.
