It's Indie-Pen-Dance Wednesday again and time to look at an utterly fascinating, artistic and fact-filled fun range of books by Miranda Sofroniou. With the heading "Things that Blow my Mind", the book range covers a diverse range of topics in a kid-friendly way, with utterly gorgeous illustrations to help children develop a deeper understanding of the world around them.

We were fortunate enough to be sent "Things that Blow my Mind - Oceans" by Miranda. Delving deep into the deep blue briny sea to examine the lifeforms that dwell within its depths, and humankind's impact on the oceans that cover 71% of the earth's surface, it certainly is a dizzying and mind-blowing set of facts for a five year old.

Miranda's art style is reminiscent of Eric Carle's wonderful books, utilising collage and mixed media to wonderful effect.

You can find the entire range of "Things that blow my mind" books on Miranda's website.

Charlotte's best bit: Working out which fish should have been caught in the net and which shouldn't!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A wonderful idea to spur children's curiosity about the world they live in, would be absolutely brilliant for use in schools too!
