Tales of travel, detective stories, domestic dramas and much else….
Our Planet is well known as a series on television but this book, like most books, allows children to sit down and slowly enjoy the beauty of the world.
Our Planet: The one place we all call home, is filled with stunning photographs and easy to understand information about different places on Earth.
Divide into 7 sections: frozen worlds, jungles, coastal seas, deserts and grasslands, high seas, fresh water and forests, readers will not only see the animals that reside in these places, they will also see the varying landscapes within.
Each chapter ends with a double page photography and words that outline how we need to protect each area in it’s own right. This double page spread is a great place to stop and think about how we as individuals can make choices to ensure that this protection can happen.
The glossary at the end is excellent, giving definitions to difficult words often heard in documentaries. Not only is the definition child friendly, some of them give short examples to help the readers understand this concept with more detail.
