I promise this will be a much shorter post than yesterday’s list of teenage reads. I kind of got carried away with that one! Today, I have three new books to tell you about, and the imaginary gift recipient is a 10-15 year old who enjoys non-fiction. I will certainly order them for school, but I keep thinking that any one of them would be a great gift for a young person who is curious about the world. All three are terrific browsing books – and I can’t wait to spend a little time with them myself.
Frozen Secrets: Antarctica Revealed by Sally M. Walker (Full color pictures of one of the most fascinating places on earth and one that most of us will never visit.)
Built to Last by David Macaulay (A “reimagining” of Castle, Cathedral and Mosque. Check out the video of Macaulay talking about this new book on Amazon.com)
Journey Into the Deep: Discovering New Ocean Creatures by Rebecca Johnson (This is the perfect gift for a budding marine scientist.)
