Early Reader Review of Planet Earth by Leonie Pratt

Read for: Early Reader Challenge

Synopsis: "What makes Planet Earth so special? It’s the only planet to have anything living on it for a start... But it also has fiery volcanoes, magnificent mountains, scorching deserts and icy landscapes. Learn all about it in this easy to read book."

My Review: Munchkin is a very literal little kid, he loves learning facts so the Usborne non-fiction books are perfect for him. With that said, this is put out there as a level 2 beginning reader book but it is far too long and dense to be that, it would be closer to a level 4 book. It is extremely long with a lot of facts packed into it. It does have some beautiful pictures and does a good job breaking down the facts and explaining them in understandable terms. While we did enjoy this book it had to read over several weeks because it was just too much to take in all at once for a young reader.

My Rating: While Munchkin did enjoy a lot of the facts in here and likes spouting them off from time to time, this is not a level 2 reader, it is much more advanced than advertised.  We give it a rating of Three Paws.
