Review: MINECRAFT GUIDE TO: EXPLORATION by: Mojang (Company)

    IMG_1982 1  

The world of Minecraft is waiting for YOU. But monsters hide around every corner and Survival Mode can be hard even for the best of players.    

This guide to  Minecraft was really helpful for me because it helped me  find what are the best “biomes” and “Seeds” to pick for my Minecraft world. This guide also helped me to be a professional in Making armour, best way of fighting those PESKY Creepers and choosing the perfect biome I can explore and mine for those sweet DIAMONDS! 

I think that the age recommendation for this book could be from ages 7-11 generally speaking. 

I recommend this guide because it’s really helpful for beginners in Minecraft and the people that are settling back into the game.  

This book helps you with the crafting recipes and “Mobs” and what  “drops” are and also  the guide sneaks in some tips for Survival Mode. I rate this book a 10/10 for beginners.   

The characters in this guide are Steve and Alex but they are not really important in this guide.  

The place were this guide is set is in the blocky overworld of Minecraft. 

This guide made me feel SMART and CREATIVE about my Minecraft worlds. 

What I like about the book is that it really helped me choose the PERFECT Biome and best way to avoid monsters such us Endermen, Creepers and Zombie Pigmen (soon to be called Zombified Piglins).

When Katherine Johnson was a young girl in West Virginia, she loved counting everything. When she went to school she excelled at mathematics, by the age of 10 she ended up at High School. She did so well there that she went to West Virginia College at the age of 15. There was one thing for sure, she loved mathematics. After college she started to teach.

In 1953 NASA hired her and there she carried out the calculations to launch the first rocket that orbited the moon.

Let’s thank Katherine Johnson for changing the world with technology!
