Letting the Kids Explore With Lonely Planet Kids - Review

My kids love books, they love reading stories and learning about things. They always love the books they get from Lonely Planet Kids and learning about the world around them.

We were sent three Lonely Planet Kids Let's Explore books which my kids enjoyed during the last school break.

The books we received were;
Let's Explore Desert
Let's Explore Mountain
Let's Explore City

First Expressions

The paperback books have 48 pages and 6 pages of stickers. 
The pages are full of fun and activities and the illustrations are great. The kids were really excited to receive the books and get on with the activities.



Readability

Suitable for readers 5+ these books will appeal to younger and older children. The story is told in short paragraphs on large pages full of colour and activity. All my children, ages 6, 9 and 11 years enjoyed the story and were able to read unaided.


The Story


Each book is about two characters, Marco, who is fascinated by maps, and Amelia, who loves technology and gadgets. They travel all around the world through cities, up mountains and across deserts. Solving problems and learning about the places they visit along with their young readers. 


In Let's Explore Desert they ride on camels across the wide dusty desert and get to travel along the river Nile. They also discover dinosaur fossils and camp out under the stars.



In Let's Explore Mountain, Marco and Amelia get to ski in the Alps and ride around Montana's Rocky Mountain taking in the serene Swift current Lake.They also climb to the top of Mount Everest and ride a train through the Himalayas. 



In Let's Explore City, they visit many cities and have adventures in New York, Paris and Sydney to name a few. 

The Verdict




At just £5.99 I think these books are worth the cost, they are jam packed with activities to keep kids happy and learning. I love my kids to learn about other places in the world. There are more than 250 stickers in each book and lots of pages to decorate with them. There are also many puzzles like word, searches and also colouring pages to complete. My kids were occupied for over an hour and they still went back later to complete some more.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay



Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
