The Lovereading4Kids comment

March 2017 Book of the Month Unless they are regular visitors to the countryside it can be hard for children to connect the milk in the two litre cartons on the supermarket shelves or in their fridge with a cow in the field; this book will address that. Over colourful, busy pages it takes children round a working farm, and in the process answers 100 questions, from who lives in the barn, to how do seeds grow, to how does flour become wheat. The answers are often hidden behind flaps making this a fun, interactive reading experience as well as an informative one. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Life on Earth: Farm by Heather Alexander

Who lives in the barn? How do seeds grow? And where do eggs come from? Find out in this fact-filled book, the first in a new non-fiction series for children aged 5+. Each book answers 100 questions in a simple and informative way, and has more than 70 lift-flaps to open.

Part of Life on Earth, a key new series for children 3-5 from Wide Eyed Editions.

A perfect introduction to a farmer's life and for talking about where food comes from and how it is grown.' * South Wales Evening Post * 'A new interactive board series for young primary aged children with that distinctive Wide-Eyed spin.' * The Bookseller *'

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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.
