The Living Planet Book Review and Giveaway

One thing my children had when they were growing up was books.  Alongside story books they could read, they used to love reference books.  Which is why when I was offered the chance to review and offer a giveaway of The Living Planet I could not refuse.

Children love to learn about the world around them, which is what this book gives.

About The Living Planet

living planet

The story of life on planet earth from plants and animals to changing climates.  Living Planet takes you on an incredible journey around the world.  Where you will discover

  • What our planet is made of
  • How plants and animals survive in different ecosystems
  • How humans have made and impact on Earths changing climate

Inside The Book


You will find an index of contents including

  • The birth of a living planet
  • Wonder of life
  • Habitats
  • People and the planet

Each section looks at different elements allowing you to learn and understand the world around you.  Plus there is an app which you can obtain via Google Play Store or Apple App Store where you can bring your book to life watching videos, making the learning experience much more fun.

My Opinion

With having three children we have had quite a few educational books through out the years.  They have always been popular with mine and something I feel every child should enjoy.  It helps to educate them about the world around them, but also great for reference books for homework projects.  I love that there is an app to go alongside the book which makes the learning and enjoyment side even more fun.

    I enjoyed Learning Science when at school. Amazing how our body works / functions. We think with little or no thought from our self.Yet perhaps we (collectively) need to take more time to think of how we treat this ‘gift of life ‘. Make healthy food/ nutrition available / accessible to fuel our human body.

    Consider the other aspects of the Human :- Our Wellbeing. The need for Fresh Air. To fuel our body. Perhaps clear our mind. Appreciate our natural surroundings from where we gain :- Oxygen, Food, Fresh Water, etc

    Busy lifestyle, heavy workload, etc can take our thoughts and concerns away from the priorities of life. Human Health most certainly being one of these. Health, Happiness and the eradication of Poverty being aspects which are the top of individuals and families agendas.

    Poverty can lead to ill health, poor nutrition, lack of wellbeing ( poor mental health, mental illness, unhappiness, depression, etc) , Poor in Spirit.

    Perhaps we all need a purpose :- A reason for living. Positivity, Kindness, Courtesy, Respect within our Life.

    Just now with Coronavirus (covid 19) we are aware who are providing essentials. Who are kind, caring, etc. Presently those who are being Thanked ( appreciated) are mainly :- Doctors, Nurses, Carers, Food Shops staff, Food delivery staff, volunteers, etc.

    Let’s us hope that the future brings the essentials for all who need. Quality of Life for all. Opportunities for all. Wellbeing for all.

    I used to love the David Attenborough programs as a child and loved learning about the animals. I could never understand though why the mean people filming would watch and film animals being attacked when they should be saving them.

    I loved to learn how to play musical instruments, much to the delight of my neighbours. Especially when I brought a bass drum home from majorettes to practice. I tried to do it indoors and the whole row of terraced houses shook. My mum quickly suggested we go to the park to practice! 😂😂
