Lonely Planet Kids – Cities

I have been sent two fabulous Lonely Planet Kids books to review all about Cities.

How cities Work is a fantastic interactive book with lots of flaps to lift and unfolding pages to see inside buildings and under the streets. 
Children will love to see how cities work from the stinky sewers to the skyscrapers. Each page is packed with information and there is loads of fun to be had by checking what’s under the flaps. Some of the pages just keep unfolding creating a huge view with so much to see learn.

Check out what is going on in a skycraper building and lift the flaps to find out what is happening behind the windows.

Watch how pages unfold and unveil a wealth of discovery.

How Cities Work is a hardback book of 24 pages. The illustrations are by James Gulliver Hancock. It’s aimed at readers aged 7+ and priced at £12.99
The second book is The Cities Book and throughout the pages discover interesting facts about many cities around the world, from Aucklan, Beijing and Copenhagen all the way through to Zanzibar town. Young readers are taken on an incredible tour through 86 of the world’s greatest cities. 
Bright colourful pages full of photos, illustrations and maps take your child on a trip of a lifetime. 
The Cities Book is a hardback book with 212 pages. It is aimed at readers aged 8+ and priced at £14.99
From Saturday 19th to Sunday 20th November, Lonely Planet Kids will be at an inspirational Pop up Photography Exhibition with a whole host of child friendly travel work shops and activities. It’s taking part at the Boxpark at Shoreditch and is free entry.
The entire exhibition runs from 8th to 20th November

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

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.
