The kids were sent these three books recently from Lonely Planet Kids and today we are going to tell you about how great they are. Firstly I will say we have had books from Lonely Planet Kids before that we have bought ourselves and they are amazing quality books, really sturdy hard back books that make wonderful gifts that will be treasured for a very long time. They are books that you can just keep going back to and every time you pick one up you will learn something new. You might associate Lonely Planet Kids with travel and you would definitely be right about that but they are so much more!
First up is The Animal Book (£14.99) which is a beautiful encyclopedia featuring over 100 incredible creatures. Not only does it tell you about these animals but how we as humans are affecting their lives and habitats so it is incredibly interesting to see what effect we have.
All the pages contain beautiful illustrations, photographs and facts of some of the world’s most diverse and fascinating mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects and invertebrates. Boo being the panda lover that she is was over the moon to see a double page spread on the Giant Panda! I think she sees herself working with panda cubs in China when she is older. How amazing would that be!!
The Dinosaur Atlas (£12.99) is absolutely jam-packed with dinosaur information, fold out pages, flaps to lift, life-size bones, teeth and claws! I wish we had this book last year when Bugs was learning all about how to be a paleontologist at school last year. He would have aced his homework with all of this information at his fingers tips!
In the Dinosaur Atlas you can learn all about where dinosaurs lived and how they were discovered and also how they evolved, what they looked like and how they hunted.
Bugs had quite a few WOW moments when he was first reading this books as he was amazed at the actual size jaws from an Anhanguera and the T-rex’s tooth. I guess it’s hard to imagine just how big something is until you get a picture like that. It is really incredible to think that Dinosaurs roamed the earth and just how many different kinds there were. If you have a little one interested in dinosaurs then this book is really amazing!
Last but most certainly not least is The Incredible Cabinet of Wonders (£15.99) which is an absolute treasure trove of weird and wonderful facts! Both of my kids say this is their favourite and it is really easy to see why. Each page is a cabinet from a specialist subject and you can lift the flaps to discover the treasures…
There is a Doctor’s cabinet, Archaeologist’s cabinet, Make-Believer’s cabinet, Scientist’s cabinet and eight other cabinets for you to explore. Each cabinet is full of little doors for you to open to discover some really weird and wonderful discoveries. If you have an inquisitive little one then this would make the perfect gift for them this Christmas… and believe me you will learn a thing or two as well!
