What’s Above & Below Series
These double-sided, concertina (massive fold out!) books take you on a fascinating journey deep underground and way up overhead.
The Street Beneath My Feet
One side of the foldout shows the ground beneath the city, whilst the reverse side shows the ground beneath the countryside. The underground scenes include tunnels and pipes, creatures' burrows, layers of rock and the planet’s molten core, and run seamlessly into the next. Mixing urban and rural settings, covering subjects such as geology, archaeology and natural history, The Street Beneath My Feet offers children the opportunity to explore their world through a detailed learning experience. And its fold-out, 'Leporello’ style, which extends to eight feet in length, is ideal for spreading out on the floor to pore over for hours.
My little scientists enjoyed the thrill of discovery through the earth’s layers! This book is best enjoyed opened up on your own floor for full discovery mode, but it can also be read like a story on your lap. The pages are strong so that they are not easily ripped by little hands. I like that it can be opened and read two pages at a time if desired, but the coolest part is definitely the way it opens up to show all the layers under the earth! -Amy, mother of four (ages 3, 5, 6, and 8) Plano, TX
The Skies Above My Eyes
Zoom past the technology that fills our skies, from helicopters, fighter jets, weather balloons, to satellites, hang-gliders, and hot-air balloons. Discover the insects and animals that whizz through the skies, explore the layers of the atmosphere, and travel through the solar system and out to the galaxies far beyond. This expansive concertina book opens out to an impressive length of over 8 feet, perfect for an inquisitive young mind.
Between the creative layout, colorful illustrations, and opportunities to learn more about science, The Skies Above my Eyes is a wonderful choice for the child who is very interested in science and constantly looking to collect more information. -Becca, mom to 3 children ages 7, 6, and 3
