I was sent a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I love non-fiction books for kids! It’s a fact. I did it when I was a kid, and I still love it now! So let’s talk about the next best non-fiction book every kid needs to read:
Title: Hey There, Earth Dweller!: Dive Into This World We Call Earth
Author: Marc ter Horst, illustrations by Wendy Panders
Published: April 2019
Goodreads synopsis: Kids are invited to learn about large-scale topics, from what makes up the many layers of the Earth—from the core to exosphere—traveling all the way out into the solar system and our many neighboring planets and moons. Presented in a vibrant mixed medium design that cleverly and humorously combines original illustrations with photographs of everyday items, this creative take on an institutional topic allows kids to engage and grasp scientific concepts covered, while encouraging them to inquisitively uncover the answers to all of their planetary questions.

My review: Every once in a while I read a non-fiction book for kids that is simply perfect – and there’s nothing more to say about this book. Honestly, the Goodreads synopsis tells you everything you need to know about this book, but if you also need my opinion, then please know that IT IS AWESOME!
This book will attract any kid due to the amazing illustrations and fun graphics, but once they start read the book they will realize that the author is sharing the information in a playful way too! And there were some things I learnt too.
An easy to read book, written in such way that it makes the reader be even more curious about our amazing planet – from the solar system to earthquakes, from weather to the possible ways our planet and life as we know it might end.
It truly is a fun educational book for any young reader proving that knowledge and fun go well together. It is a book that I will get for every little Earth Dweller in my family!
