ACHUKA Book of the Day 12 Nov 2021
“Jisu Choi’s amazing, colourful and funky illustration makes Beetles for Breakfast a book you want to pick up as soon as you see the vibrant and cool front cover. Although it’s a super colourful book with plenty of detail, the information is still organised well and is easy to read, and ideal for 8-9 year olds.” BookTrust
“Choi’s illustrations are stunning. The book is visually powerful and it took several glances and each page before I felt I’d really explored each one. Each page is deserving of detailed exploration and discussion. This is a book to be read together and shared. There is a section on what children can do at home to be more environmentally friendly. Most of this list is very manageable and many children will be inspired reading this. The glossary is informative and useful. A beautiful book that will be poured over and enjoyed by children and adults alike.” ReadingZone
We all know the effects that climate change is having on our planet – but what about the strange, and creative ways that scientists are working to find practical and imaginative answers to these big problems? Following a day in the life of a child, we see how new green inventions could fit into everyday life, from brushing your teeth with biodegradable algae, to eating beetle burgers for lunch and coming home to do your homework with a pen with ink made from exhaust fumes. With a mixture of infographic-style artwork and topical, and funny facts from scientist Madeleine Finlay, children will love seeing familiar scenes with a futuristic twist. Open up to learn all about the cool, exciting and sometimes quite strange inventions that could be part of normal life in the future.
