The Children's Animal Atlas is colourful, easy to manage and nicely organised. There isn't too much information provided for a KS1 child to absorb but with the extra material provided at the back, you can develop more thinking activities, for example encouraging children to create their own quiz from the information in the book, or using it in partner work for the children to ask each other questions. You can work on answers being detailed and precise, so they'd need to use page references, or build in writing exercises based on the postcards and posters in the book. This is not just a one-dimensional information book. Reading Zone
