Earth and the Universe by Ian Graham


Earth and the Universe by Ian Graham

What are the highest and deepest places on earth? What causes earthquakes? How thick is the atmosphere? What is the largest planet in the solar system? This book addresses the questions that children are likely to ask about our own planet and the universe of which it is a part. This book contains marvelously detailed illustrations by specialist artists show everything from the inside of the earth to the furthest regions of the universe; two spreads have been designed with an acetate overlay to show how different creatures live together - or prey on one another; and, a 'true or false?' quiz runs through the book, with answers given at the end, to make it truly interactive. A glossary and index encourage children to use the book as an educational resource.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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.

We love Lovereading4kids because it promotes reading choices, new authors and a sense of community for children of all ages!

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