Press & blog reviews

The See Inside range is a stonkingly good series of books covering a wealth of topics. They are a4 sized hardbacks crammed full with information and diagrams and hundreds of flaps to lift to see what’s going on inside. They really do grow up with children – a sure sign of a quality, well-designed series!

Rhino Reads

A super collection of information books from Usborne, which really engage the reader by providing interesting information, colourful graphics and plenty of flaps with yet more information.

Parents in Touch

This is a really important topic and it is essential that our children understand the issues involved and how they can play their part. This book takes a comprehensive look at what happens to the horrifying amount of rubbish which is produced, but does so in an approachable and interesting way. From what happens when we throw rubbish away and how it is collected right through to how it is recycled, the amount of detail in the book is amazing...This book will be a great help for topic work. Don't miss the rubbish facts at the end!

Parents in Touch

With brightly coloured, engaging illustrations and characters by Peter Allen, this is a very busy book, packed full of information on recycling and resource recovery that will entertain older children, while hopefully teaching them about where their rubbish goes...and what they can actively do to help the environment, all presented in a positive, non-preachy manner.

Resource

As a change from very broad overviews of green matters, this large, colourful book concentrates on what happens to our rubbish. Every packed page offers flaps to lift...plus a page of facts. For example, “26 plastic bottles can make a whole ski outfit.” It’s amaze your parents time! The four fold-out centre pages are interesting to everyone who recycles... Although aimed at the primary years, because of the illustrations, this can be suitable for the youngest children and parents will have some questions answered too.

Carousel

This book is interesting because it has flaps you can lift up to see inside things. You can see what it's really like inside a Materials Recovery Facility, which is the proper name for a recycling centre... I learnt facts like how tall buildings can have rubbish chutes down the outside and how recycling gets sorted on a conveyor belt.
