            This book tells details when you are in survival mode on Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. So I think you should read this book and it's amazing there's this book at my school library like chopping trees, finding diamonds, etc. Age 7+ ShoddyRobin66's Ratings!

              This is the perfect book for beginner minecrafters! There is a detailed list of mobs and what they drop when killed. A list of what animals eat (so you can use them in a farm!) How to make armor, tools, torches, beds, and lost just keeps going! Also it shows you how to make the perfect shelter for your first night. Recommended to 11+ -- Thanks for reading -Ajg16's reviews (watch out for those creepers!)
