Living Planet book review and giveaway

The lovely people from Welbeck publishing sent me a copy of Living Planet for the purpose of this review. They are also giving away another copy to one lucky reader (details at the bottom of this review). 

With libraries shut and schools closed, there has never been a better time to build up your families reading library! 

Living planet

We have been reading this for our non-fiction text in our homeschool and it is really good. It is easy to understand but also informative. It has an app which you can download for free to use with the book too. When you see the symbol for the app you use the app to scan the page and then you can watch a video which supports what you have been reading. 

When we were reading about volcanoes there was a picture of an erupting volcano with the app symbol. We scanned the picture and watched video footage of the volcano erupting. This was great and really helps to cement the learning. 

It is advertised as being great for key stage two readers but Faith is now key stage 3, which is year 7 in British schools. It was still really useful for her as it gives a good understanding for her to then research further and build on the knowledge learned. 

We were also super impressed with the art and images in the book as they are fantastic. It is available from Amazon but if you would like to have a go at winning yourself a copy, take a look at our giveaway below.
