Do you want to count backwards – 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…BLAST OFF! Zooming around the Solar System in a rocket ship?
I read a lot of children’s chapter books, but none have been quite like this one, its story is fresh and real, with an injection of history that brings it all into a well paced adventure.
I am a big advocate of having Non Fiction books readily available for children to read. They are great learning tools that often don’t make the reader feel like they are learning because they are having so much fun, yes learning can be fun.
Calling all shark trackers!…We’ll hit our favourite shark haunts and hideouts and study lot of different sharks…and, of course, those celebrities of the sea.. A combination of these words were the introduction to the book and they really packed a punch. I was inspired to go on the journey with Professor John and study these mysterious creatures and hopefully to dispel some of my fears.
My words will not do this book justice, because I can barely find the words for the up-close photography gives you a look at animals and nature like you have never seen before. The front of the book drew me in the first time I saw it, its beauty doesn’t just lie in its shiny cover though, the pages within are captivating and the information will keep you immersed for hours.
There is something quite spectacular about this book, and just by looking at the cover you do not realise just how compelling it is until you open the pages and are presented with striking photos of animals. The words I have seem inadequate to describe the stunning photography.
Without a doubt this picture filled book of facts about awesome animals will be running off the shelves. I am serious, this book is not only packed full of interesting information but its also a colourful wonderland that will have your least enthusiastic reader turning the pages wanting to learn more.
