Overview

In Flip The Flaps: Planet Earth by Dr Mike Goldsmith, illustrated by Nicki Palin, children zoom up through protective layers of the atmosphere from the surface to outer space, following the Earth as it makes its yearly journey around the Sun. Young explorers lift the flaps to reveal answers about everything from the inner workings of our planet and why volcanoes erupt to finding animals in the forests and in the sea. Plus, a fun spot-the-difference game suddenly appears as the artwork amazingly changes.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The approach is visually appealing.” —Horn Book

“This is an informative book that will engage readers in a tactile way as they explore the text. . . . Some of the illustrations are labeled, providing additional nontextual information for readers. This book would be a nice inclusion in a classroom or school library because it builds on the natural curiosity of young children. . . . While the information is very general, it's appropriate for younger children who have questions such as "What is it like deep underground?" or "What is at the bottom of the ocean?” —NSTA Recommends
