PRIMARY school pupils cast their expert eye over the magical Disney collection that is on offer with the Mail in the coming months.
The Year 6 children from Owton Manor Primary School, in Eskdale Road, Hartlepool, spent the afternoon reading the Dinosaurs and the Atlas of the World books from the Wonderful World of Knowledge series.
The Dinosaurs book is the very first of the 24-book series and will be free with the Hartlepool Mail on Tuesday, March 15.
The Atlas of the World book is one of the books which will be available in the weeks after and can be bought for just £2.99 with a token available in the Mail.
I spoke to the children to find out what they thought of the books.
Jack Bage, 11, said: “I think these books are really good for children of all ages.
“I can’t believe how many facts are in them.
“They would be really useful.

Christopher Marshall, 10, said he really enjoyed looking through the Dinosaurs book.
He said: “I think younger kids especially will really like these books.

Leah Wilson, 11, said: “I found the book really interesting.

Shannon Grayson, 11, thinks children of all ages will enjoy the books.
Shannon said: “Younger children will really enjoy reading them because of the bright colours and all of the pictures.
“But the facts in them are really useful so older children will like them as well.
