Our Philosophy

What on Earth Books publishes nonfiction books that engage children's natural curiosity and passion for learning. We offer our readers diverse perspectives on the world and help them connect the dots to build a lifetime of knowledge. It comes down to this: The real world is far more amazing than anything you can make up!

We take great pleasure in helping children engage deeply with learning and empathise with the world around them. Seeing things from different perspectives is key to this, and lies at the heart of our What on Earth brand.

We celebrate the surprise and delight as children and adults make new connections - realising not everyone sees the world exactly the same way in 'Eye Spy', noticing how many people over time and around the world have quested for immortality in 'Absolutely Everything', or gleefully counting the ghosts in every play in the 'Shakespeare Timeline Wallbook'.

That's what gets us up every morning. And makes each day its own curiosity-driven adventure.
