About this deal

In this original take on presenting/reading non-fiction have fun exploring an amazing collection of interconnected facts. Some of the paths are sort of like choose your own adventure, where you can follow a path forward or choose to follow it to another page, listed on the path. The twist (and the fun of it) comes when you follow the facts from page to page in a "choose-your-own-adventure" type journey through the book. I like the premise of this book -- trying to take encyclopedic information and present it in a new and interesting way. I hope that kids who read this book, or any nonfiction book, want to dig deeper and ask even more questions about something they found fascinating.

There is more than one trail through the wealth of facts included so divergent thinkers can choose to follow their own path … Andy Smith’s 300+ illustrations are huge fun and add to the enjoyment of this collection of facts for curious children (and the occasional adult I suspect). We absolutely loved diving in and following our fact-hunting noses to track down the obscure and the unbelievable. The perfect book for any fact-lover, Factopia contains 400 different facts to discover and be wowed by, covering almost anything from nature to robots to the human body to space.Every Britannica-verified fact in the book is connected to the next in an ingenious trail of information. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Je kunt een pad volgen van begin naar het einde maar ook af en toe een detour nemen en een ander pad volgen! This coruscating cornucopia of extraordinary facts is truly a fun and fact-filled reading adventure.But there’s not just one trail through these pages: sometimes your path branches and you can choose to jump to a totally different (but still connected) part of the book. In this blast-from-the-past adventure you'll discover hundreds of the most mind-blowing facts from history. For the kid who want to know why and how, who loves having random information at their finger tips and just loves to learn new things about their world - this is fantastic fun. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. His work combines illustration and typography to create images that have humour, energy and optimism executed with a handmade, hand-printed, tactile feel.

These paths all intertwine really well, as you transition from learning about bugs to learning about sharks, and then into light reflecting off of the moon creating rainbows! In a world of misinformation, it’s great to know that the 400 facts in this book have been verified by Encyclopaedia Britannica.This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. But there's not just one trail through these pages: sometimes your path branches and you can choose to jump to a totally different (but still connected) part of the book. There are tons of different subjects within the book; breakfasts, space, animals, dinosaurs, light, weather, crystals – anything you could possibly think of. The illustrations are fun and dominate the page while the arrows between the facts prompt even the most reluctant reader to investigate further.
