All aboard for the history of transport

ALL aboard as the fascinating journey into Disney’s The Wonderful World of Knowledge continues with a look at Transport.

Planes, trains and automobiles are just some of the many forms of transport covered in this week’s book, which travels through more than 100 years of development.

Chapters include The Horseless Carriage, Supercars, Working Vehicles, Sailing Ships, Beneath The Waves, Taking To The Air, Steam Trains and Integrated Transport, to name but a few.

And as with all of the titles in this colourful 24 encyclopaedia set, your favourite Disney characters come along for the ride.

Nine-year-old Dominique Gosling has enjoyed a preview of the book and strongly recommends it, saying: “This non-fiction book is all about transport.

“It has diagrams which are colourful and detailed, with interesting and fun Disney characters on each page to make it fun for children.

“It is easy to find out good information and would be great for children aged five to ten.

“It contains lots of information, with headings and sub-headings in bold writing to stand out. It has a really good lay-out and is clear to read.

“It is a really good idea to have on each page an amazing fact. The photographs displaying information are bright and colourful, with an eye-catching front cover and an interesting blurb.

“I would really recommend this book. I think it is great.”

Next week, the learning adventure continues with a snapshot of Birds.

The book focuses on different types of birds, their habits and habitats, diet and travels.

Each title in the series costs £2.99 with the Morpeth Herald and is available from participating newsagents.
