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!

Waterfalls and how beautiful they are x
the fact it can support life is amazing
Fascinated by the Natural wonders of the world
The Northern Lights it’s fascinating how they occur and their beauty
The fact that in such a huge galaxy we are apparently the only planet capable of supporting human life (as far as we know) 🙂
Waterfalls -they’re so beautiful xx
I find it amazing that there are still undiscovered things about planet Earth that need to be discovered! That, and wildlife.
I find the most fascinating thing about the Earth is the great diversity of wildlife and how they have evolved to cope with the different conditions the earth has.
Just how everything has been created
I think it’s amazing that only 5% of the earths ocean has been explored, when the earth is 70% ocean
The fact that earth is so much older than humanity, it puts life into perspective.
I find space and stars and planets fascinating because it’s interesting.
The fact that gravity makes the earth round is amazing!
The way that gravity works and which side of the planet is actually walking upside down
The sheer vastness of space, where does it end……. if it ever does?
the odds of the earth supporting such a wide and diverse range of life
what I find most intresting has to be animals, how the can vary from something so big yet small and all the clever adapting things they can do
The most fascinating thing about the planet earth is the sheer number of different spieces that inhabit it. If evolution is correct we should all be heading the same direction but the diversity of animal and plant life keeps changing?
ive been fascinated by crop circles for many years …still a total mystery how the are made :-))
That it is somehow suspended in space and revolving.
The number and variety of different species and how each has their own job to do x
How diverse it is – how you can go from visiting a rainforest to a desert in less than 24 hours.
The fact that elsewhere in the world it’s the night and people are asleep yet here it is the middle of the day, baffling!

Extreme weather events are always interesting
ooo these look like great books!
It’s ability to heal itself xx
The thought that we don’t know everything, and that there is still more to be discovered.
I love oceans, how undiscovered they are. We send probes to other planets yet we haven’t explored our own.
how we are a tiny little planet in one massive galaxy
Earth is the only planet which isn’t named after a god. No idea why I find that interesting I just do 🙂
i find it interesting how much water we have on earth and how many sea as not been explored
That about 2/3 of Earth is water, yet we have to discover so much more about it – science is progressing in this, and I always find amazing things that are found in deep sea that we have never seen
I find the weather really interesting it’s like magic and affects everyone and is so different all over the world!
the weather, how beautiful and destructive it can be
the sheer number of living organisms

The oceans, which cover almost 71 percent of the Earth’s surface, contain close to 20 million tons of gold.
All the species of animals fascinate me

Understanding the size of everything!
The sheer size of the world and countries just amazes me and we only see a tiny piece of it generally
I find the fact that we even exist mindblowing as planet earth has everything just right so that we can exist. Is that just a coincedence? who knows 🙂
I think it’s amazing that the Earth has so many cycles. It is in a constant state of destruction and rebirth. I actually find that somewhat comforting.

I think just how much liquid do the seas hold.
The fact that we live here on earth

Natural selection, the way animals evolves to ensure survival is unbelievable.
I find storms really interesting especially tornados x
I find it mad that dinosaurs used to rule the earth before us and just how they died out and how the earth changed.
What do you find most fascinating about planet Earth and why? . . . . geology . . . . it’s so fascinating to see all the different rocks and how they were formed all those millions of years ago
the different types of extreme weathers x
Everything about planet Earth is awe inspiring. Since my 2 year old Grandson was born, it has made me more aware of my surroundings. Things you totally take forgranted, the Seasons for example, how beautiful trees are etc etc. It is a never ending cycle.
Nature! How it works together each plant and creature big or small seem to have a purpose
whirlpools, i love how they are so calm but also so dangerous
I find the weather fascinating – totally uncontrollable
The fact that we have life – the Goldilocks planet!
The sheer size of it compared to us.
This would be perfect for my science love son who is 5. He is currently home school. Thanks for marking this possible. Now he will find answer for his numerous questions.
Evolution – how plants and animals have changed to survive in the current habitat.
all the wonders and that no one really knows how it started and there is still millions of things to find!
The fact that we can survive here on Earth but not on other planets
How we are all created and that it supports life xxx
The variety of terrain – the fact one planet can be so diverse and support so much life, due largely to the variety of terrain!

I’m fasinated by the stars and how the earth rotates on an axis round the sun.
What fascinates me about Earth is how it has changed over centuries. All the continents used to be together and gradually drifted apart to make 7 separate continents! I wonder what it will look like in the future?
I find it fascinating that the Earth isn’t round. Centrifugal force pushes outwards at Earth’s equator giving it a slight wasteline.
The fact there are so many different species and sub species of so many living things
Its a wonderful world
How all the different species on earth have evolved to adapt perfectly to their habitat.
I’m always amazed by how deep some Oceans are. Crazy to think what lives down there.
