Monkey may still be lagging behind with his reading but this boy certainly does love information and the 300 Fantastic Facts books range from Miles Kelly has gone down rather well here. The books are primarily aimed at children aged 7 years and over.
The 300 Fantastic Facts books range from Miles Kelly consists of 4 books covering the topics of Bugs, Science, Ancient History and Earth. Published earlier this month, these large paperback books have been providing Monkey with all sorts of facts and figures recently.
The 300 Fantastic Facts – Bugs was always going to be a winner here, with the family interest in minibeasts.
The 128 page book, as with the others in the series is crammed full of information, photographs and clear illustrations. The book is a really good source of reference and Monkey has spent ages looking through it recently.
There’s information on spiders, butterflies and moths as well as fact about blood thirsty bugs, which bugs burrow the best and so on. We’ve both been very impressed with the content. Big thumbs up here.
Next up in the 300 Fantastic Facts books range from Miles Kelly is the History book which focuses on the Ancient Worlds of Greece, Rome and Egypt.
My love affair with Egypt began at school when I learnt about Ancient Egypt and I can’t wait to share the journey with Monkey when he learns about it too. The History 300 Fantastic Facts book is a great source to learn about all three of the ancient civilisations.
From the class hierarchy within Egypt, to Mummy making through the use of Hieroglyphics, the facts, pictures and photographs will help Monkey learn about my favourite ancient world. For Ancient Greece he can read up about the Trojan Horse and the various Kings, Gods and all about the Olympic Games. The section on Ancient Rome includes topics such as Gladiators, farming and Roman Baths.
In each of the 300 Fantastic Facts books range from Miles Kelly there are little quizzes through the books to test what children have learnt.
I can already see that Science will be an area that Monkey will enjoy at school, and this 300 Fantastic Facts book will be much referred to in the years ahead.
Facts covered include Engine Power, Chemicals and Science in Nature as well as information on different scientists through the ages. The Human Body is also covered, everything from how we breathe to muscle power and hair and nail. Facts and figures galore along with great illustrations.
The last of the 300 Fantastic Facts books range from Miles Kelly covers Planet Earth in all its glory.
Covering the planet Earth itself, its Oceans and its wonderful weather, the book is once again crammed with useful facts and is well illustrated. We’ve looked at information on Caves and Fossils and how we can care for our planet. There’s information on Rock Pools, ocean living animals and who and what rides waves. The weather is a bit of a sore point at the moment isn’t it! But the book covers the season, how and why they are different as well as looking at clouds and the changing climate.
Priced at £9.99 each (currently £7.49 on the Miles Kelly website) these are a great factual books, that will be well read here. Bring on the school projects, we are ready for you!
