What they say: Full of fun facts, colourful illustrations, and games that will feed a child’s imagination and quench their thirst for knowledge, whilst supporting the National Curriculum. My Encyclopedia of Very Important Things is the perfect book for children from 4 – 7 years of age.
Supporting the national curriculum and providing all the information young minds need and much more, My Encyclopedia of Very Important Things is split into four sections, All About Me, Animals, People, and My Planet, covering everything from the continents to the blue whale in fun and engaging ways.
Bursting with knowledge and loads of very important things to set young minds alight.
What we say: “My twin sons are 5 years old and love to learn ‘facts’, whether it be about the weather, dinosaurs or superheroes! So I knew they would enjoy us reading through this book together…
Broken into sections such as ‘Very important things about my planet” and “Very important things about animals” each double page concentrates on one particular subject, ‘Extreme weather’, ‘The very big blue whale’ and ‘Amazing art’ as examples. Within this, bright and bold images are featured alongside small, bite size facts and figures – just enough information for younger children to understand and hold onto.
Both boys have enjoyed learning from the book and I have enjoyed learning from it too! It’s a book to dip in and out of and I am sure it will be of great reference through their early years learning at school too. Definitely one to have on the bookshelf.”
