This review is from: Not For Parents How to be a World Explorer (Lonely Planet) (Hardcover)
My 8 year old son really loves this book. It's nicely bound, pretty thick hardback, bigger than a4 sized I'd say.
The title gives it away, and there's various different titled sections dealing with different world terrain, e.g. Desert, jungle, etc...and then there's fun and interesting facts about these different themes....I.e. the story about a female falling out of a plane for around 2 miles, into the jungle where the trees broke her fall....yet she sustained nothing more than a black eye or two....lucky....then she kept herself alive by eating sweets.....my son loves some of these mad facts.
It's fun for adults too...brightly illustrated, interesting, and you're bound to learn something.
Very highly recommended
