I was kindly sent The Polar Pack for my girls to read and enjoy.
Each hardover book comes complete with 5 paper animals and scenery. The paper animals are printed on sheets of paper which are neatly placed in a pocket at the back of the book whilst the scenery is cleverly disguised within the books reversible cover.
Filled with gorgeously vibrant illustrations, which have real retro vibe about them. The pictures are really eye catching, drawing you in to each page. Every turn of the page introduces new facts which are just waiting to be discovered.
"Reindeer are good at smelling food deep beneath the ice".
These books are aimed at children between the ages of 4 and 7 and they certainly appealed to my kids. My eldest took great joy in reading to her sister's and it was perfect timing because she is learning about the frozen planet at school right now, so she even to the book in to show her teacher.
Once you finish reading the book, the story continues as you fold, glue and create you very own 3D animals, expanding the imagination further. As we were making them I was asking the girls if they could remember what they had read about each animal and this in turn had them asking about what other animals could be found in these places.
The 3D animals had the girls escaping to another world, talking about what they would be up to if they were one of the animals living in freezing conditions, just how do they stay warm? What food will they eat? Playing against the included backdrop, really setting the scene.
We've actually been researching and have decided to try and make some more animals to go along side the ones already in the book.
Costing £12.99 each, these books are a great way of learning through play. Interactive and engaging, this stunning set combines education with playtime. A lovely learning tool that is brilliant for a bit of family activity time.
