YOUNGSTERS took a break from class and cast their eye over the fantastic Disney book collection available with the Mail.
It is now just five days until the first book in the Wonderful World of Knowledge collection, Dinosaurs, can take pride of place on your bookshelf when it goes out absolutely free.
And the Year 5 pupils at Eldon Grove Primary School, in Hartlepool, were one of the first groups in Hartlepool lucky enough to get a glance at some of the titles, which are not available to buy in shops, before the big giveaway gets underway next week.
Sarah Massey, nine, was one of the children who had a look at some of the books.
Sarah said: “I got chance to have a look at the Dinosaurs and the Atlas of the World books.
“I really enjoyed looking at them, they look brilliant.
“I think children our age would find the subjects interesting, but because of the illustrations and colours they would appeal to younger children as well.”
Adam Saunders, nine, added: “These books look great.
“I looked at two of the books, but I would like to be able to read some more.”
Rachael Bennett, a Year 5 teacher at the school also took time out of her day to read through the books and said she was very impressed with what she saw.
Ms Bennett said: “What I find most impressive about these books is they make useful and important facts and topics very fun for the children to read.
“The illustrations are absolutely fantastic and younger children will obviously like the fact the Disney characters are involved.
“The topics are very interesting and the books are set out in a way which is very engaging for the children.
“I enjoyed having a look through them myself.”
After Mail readers get their Dinosaurs book absolutely free next Tuesday, the collection then begins with tokens available every week in the paper.
With tokens in hand, people can get the next book in the series for just £2.99.
