grandma's bookshelf - Journal of Discovery - I'm Giving One Away!

If you are looking for a book for elementary age children, one which is interesting, fun and educational . . . definitely take a look at the Journal of Discovery!

Journal of Discovery  
Text By - Peter Riley
Paper Engineering - David Hawcock
Publisher - Silver Dolphin Books
Ages - 10+

Favorite Features -

  • six large 3-D pop-ups with extra movable features
  • two small pop-ups and three additional movable features
  • covers discoveries and inventions by Copernicus, Guttenberg, Watt, Marconi, Lumiere brothers and Edison
As Silver Dolphin Books says, "Journal of Discovery is a unique collection of exquisite pop-ups and illustrations which celebrates these intellectual pioneers and their awe-inspiring works. Readers will learn about the Lumiere brothers, who made the first motion picture, and Marchese Marconi, who developed the first radio telegraph picture. They’ll find out how James Watt perfected the steam engine and how Johannes Gutenberg developed his innovative method of printing. They’ll learn how these ideas were received in the past, and how they continue to influence our present — and our future."

This book is educational and a delight . . .
