Absolutely Everything! Children's History Of Everything Book Pack Christmas Giveaway

We've been sent the Absolutely Everything Bundle to review. Published by What On Earth? Books. Absolutely Everything!: A History of Earth, Dinosaurs, Rulers, Robots and Other Things Too Numerous to Mention really is a huge book full of the history of everything, starting with the Earth itself. A big thick hardback full of information, diagrams, photos and illustrations, it's the sort of beautiful and fascinating book that anyone can pick up and spend a quality hour with...


The Absolutely Everything Bundle contains the Absolutely Everything! book plus a brand new and quite different Activity Book. To promote the launch, for the next month only you can buy the Absolutely Everything Bundle for a mere £10Bargain. Excellent for any child who wants to learn more at home and ideal for home educators. 


Suitable for readers of any age around 9+ and written by Chris Lloyd, who created the brilliant Timeline Wallbooks, Absolutely Everything!: A History of Earth, Dinosaurs, Rulers, Robots and Other Things Too Numerous to Mention takes us on an epic journey from the creation of the universe 13.8 billion years ago, right through to the modern world, computing, equality, war and peace...


There are illustrations or photographs throughout and unsurprisingly timelines, which are without doubt the best way to understand chronological order, especially when you are dealing with big numbers.


The text is wide spaced and ideal for confident readers aged around 9+, but there can be a lot of text on a page, so it may be intimidating for newer or younger readers. The language is mature enough for adult readers, with explanation and interesting factual stories throughout.


Absolutely Everything! has a surprising amount of detail condensed into one book, and it never rambles aimlessly, instead asking questions of the readers and making them think about the answers. It's the best way to learn and retain information, and your child, or you, will learn a lot.


The Absolutely Everything! Activity Book is unusual too. Not quite like any activity books I've used in the past, it's full of even more short fun facts about items, creatures and events in the book, along with challenges and ideas for children.


Form Time Travellers to Meditation and Sanitation, the activities are open-ended and allow a lot of scope for children to create or do in their own style. It's an excellent tool for home education and is also just a great activity book for any restless youngster.


Absolutely Everything!: A History of Earth, Dinosaurs, Rulers, Robots and Other Things Too Numerous to Mention is written by Christopher Lloyd with illustrations by Andy Forshaw, Will Exley and Justin Poulter. Published by What On Earth Books in hardback with 336 pages, rrp £16.99. The Activity Book is 34 pages rrp £6.99. 

Available to buy now from all good bookshops, including online from What On Earth Books, where you can also find out more about their whole range and buy the bundle deal of both books for only £10 until the end of November!
