I’ve got a lovely book from Carlton Books to share with you today. As you all know well, I love books and anything that looks a little bit different that might spark the reading bug with my son is a winner for me. Paperscapes: The Amazing World of Animals is just that sort of book. It’s a real beauty and is published on 7th February. So here’s a sneak preview for you all.
This 64 page hardback book is unlike any other that we own, and is part of the Paperscapes series that Carlton Books are introducing. So what makes this book a little different?
Paperscapes: The Amazing World of Animals is full of beautifully illustrated pages introducing us to animals from around the world, their habitats, size and lifespans. The book also features die-cut pages, this has to be the only time in my life that I’ve willing watched a book being pulled apart! But when you remove the waste paper, it truly brings this book and the animals within it to life.
The book is aimed at those aged 7 years and over, and the die cut pages pull apart quite easily, to really showcase the various animal. My son really loved watching the book transform as he pulled the pages and started to look at the facts about the various animals.
From penguins to the tentacled octopus and the meerkats that everyone adores, the book is full of some of our favourite animals, as well as a few that my son hasn’t encountered before.
He’s a big fan of The Secret Life of the Zoo, so knows all sorts of facts about seahorses already, but he loved seeing the pages dedicated to these marvellous little sea creatures.
As I mentioned earlier, Paperscapes: The Amazing World of Animals is part of a series of books and I’ll be sharing another in the series soon, a must have for any space fans out there.
