Secrets of Our Earth: A Shine-A-Light adventure

13 Mar

Secrets of Our Earth by Carron Brown and Wesley Robins (Ivy Kids) is part of the innovative Shine-A-Light  non-fiction series. Perfect for Early Years and Key Stage 1 topics, these books make learning a hands-on adventure.


Exploring the planet from the outside in, looking at mountains and rivers, rainforests and cities, children can hold each page up to the light to get a glimpse of what happens behind-the-scenes.



Brilliant fun and full of facts, this is a great book to get young children involved in reading and learning. I can imagine children in dens with torches exploring this book and learning about the world around them. I love how it plays to children’s natural curiosity and interest in hands-on learning. It shows them that there is a whole world out there waiting to be explored and that there’s always something new to be discovered.



The series of Shine-A-Light books includes Secrets of the Seashore, On the Space Station, Secrets of the Rainforest and On the Construction Site, meaning there’s a book for every interest and every school topic.
