This is a rich source of geographical information presented in an engaging format. Issues are presented in an easy-to-understand, but not over-simplified manner, providing a clear agenda for action on global problems in a format that will appeal to young children. It will be a valuable addition to any school's library. The lift-the-flap format encourages hands-on involvement and the high quality, robust presentation will make this a long-lasting and durable resource.
Loads of easily accessible information is packed into this attractive interactive information book. Busy spreads draw readers in to explore different aspects of the Earth from where it is in the solar system to the geography you can find on it. And it’s easy to discover more by opening flaps.

The wealth of detail in the colourful, cheerful, cartoon-style illustrations makes repeated readings rewarding. There is a strong environmental theme throughout the book, and the final double-page spread is devoted to the small changes everyone can make to combat climate change.

My five year old is very interested in facts and loves this book. Since having it we have gone on to buy several more of the series, all of which he finds really interesting and asks for over and over again. His other particular favourite is 'See under the Sea'.
