The Lovereading4Kids comment

A book to treasure, this is an in-depth look at the creatures of the pre-historic world with stunning, carefully drawn illustrations capturing the details of how they would have looked. Much of the geology and biology of the planet from the very earliest moments of its creation has now been reconstructed. From this evidence the detailed texts and beautiful illustrations have been created. The special characteristics of the creatures of the sea, land and air are all included. Taken together, they give an amazing account of the earliest life on earth.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
