Have you ever stopped to think about the world we live in? Sometimes when I stand up on Bodmin Moor with far reaching views over rolling countryside and out to sea I ponder on the world in which we live, what will be come of it and weather the younger generations will want to understand and protect our fragile planet. Destination Planet Earth from Wide Eyed publications, part of the Quarto Group, takes children on a journey of discovery over our planet from its very core to high in the atmosphere. With fascinating facts and beautiful illustrations I believe any child with a chance to study this book will come away with both an understanding of our planet, its scope and fragility and ideas of how we can best protect it; not to mention a developing knowledge of science and geography. To discover more and be in with a chance of winning this great reference book read on.
A journey of discovery
Each page tackles a different area of the planet or topic from earthquakes and volcanoes to life at the Poles and the contribution of mountains to our weather and river to our landscape. The book begins with the earth as a whole and how it is made up between land and water and finishes with a stylish double page pull out map of the world which would look great on any young scientist or geographer’s bedroom wall.
What we love
The book is nonfiction and totally absorbing packed with interesting facts and explanations and supported with eye catching illustrations. Anyone who enjoyed dipping into the BBC’s series on Planet Earth or the Blue Planet will enjoy this book and appreciate the conservation measures we can all begin to take in everyday life.
