Synopsis

The World Came to My Place Today by Jo Readman, Ley Honor Roberts

The world really does come to visit George when his grandpa arrives, with globe, to look after him and his sister for the day. Grandpa explains how everything from the cereal they eat for breakfast and the choclate bars they love, to the rubber in their bicycle tyres and wood in their toys, comes from plants all over the world. This title follows George's day as he discovers the wonder of plants and how they affect his daily life. With eye-catching, quirky illustrations coupled with photographs of the original grasses, fruits and plants on the right-hand side, this book follows the ethos of the Eden Project by increasing awareness in children of the natural world around them.

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

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

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.
