Boolino sent me this remarkable book.
The first thing that struck me when I looked at this book was the paper torch at the back
The book is hard back and spiral bound which makes it easy to read while using the torch because the pages stay open. The front cover is quite striking giving a clue to what is inside.
This is an extremely interesting and educational book which explains the food chain of animals in a simple way which children will understand. There are dark transparent pages throughout which I wasn’t sure why they were there at first glance, once I pushed out the paper torch I soon discovered the meaning, when the torch is placed behind the page, as if by magic images light up making the book even more enticing for the reader.
Towards the end of the book it explains briefly how much food some animals eat, this, I think, will appeal to boys especially as in my experience boys can sometimes be a little reluctant to read so this with the addition of the torch feature may just persuade them . The back inside cover has a place to store the paper torch keeping it safe ensuring that it can be used every time the book is read.
What animals eat is published by moonlight publishing and retails at £8.54, making it great value for money in my opinion. It would suit children aged 5-8 years.
