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.
This book is like DisneyLand, as your make your way through it there are surprises on every page, discoveries to be made and clues to follow. When this book arrived on my doorstep I literally said “WOW”, I knew in an instant that this would be a most treasured and loved book.
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.
The book is extremely thorough from the outset, the introduction gives an insight into what coding is, what python is, what to install and where to begin. It took me a little while to get used to the different ‘language’, using words such as Hacks, Tweaks, Modules, and Strings.
I know I say this about so many books that I read BUT I really really really love these first 4 books in the D-Bot Squad series. I am not the only one who loves them because according to reviews on the D-Bot Squad web page children are saying that these books are AWESOME and made them feel both AMAZING, and EXCITED. I agree with them…because I read one after the other until I had read all 4. You know how some people binge watch TV…I believe I just binge read the first four books in this series and if you continue reading you will see why.
This Book Stinks! The publishers think it stinks, the author thinks it stinks…most people think it stinks and so do I!
I wasn’t sure what to expect from the book ‘Shark Lady: the true story of how Eugenie Clark became the ocean’s most fearless scientist’. To be honest I had never heard of her before, but when I read the description of the book I was indeed wanting to learn more about her and her love for sharks.
In this book, Min the microbe (who is as small as a dot), takes you on an adventure looking at microbes and everyday things very very close up (microscopic). The microscope images by Linnea Rundgren are of everyday things we come in contact with such as paper, teeth and skin, which is completely fascinating.
