DK Discovery Day ~ DK Findout! World War I ~ GIVEAWAY!

World War I seems like a long time ago…just over 100 years to be exact! Yet, the truth is that we can learn so much from history…and I for one want to learn about our history, about the success and mistakes that people made before our time, etc. (and yes…I am a bit of a history buff…I admit to it being my favorite subject in high school…and I still enjoy it. πŸ˜‰ ) So, where do we go to find quality history books that are both educational and engaging? The usual spot…DK Canada!

DK findout! World War I is a fabulous book. It discusses the build-up to the war, as well as things such as actual battles, the technology they developed and used, who the key players were, espionage, tanks, artillery and loads more. This book was written by an expert in the field and is packed full of facts, amazing pictures and activities (such as little quizzes) and more. It’s perfect for children and feeds their thirst for knowledge in a way that is fun, to the point and informative. The book features both real-life photography as well as beautiful artwork.

We always have enjoyed DK findout! books and this one is no exception. It’s like a mini encyclopedia on a specific topic…the only difference is that it is a whole lot more engaging and fun to read than the encyclopedia would be. πŸ™‚ Although the book is designed specifically for children, I found that I really enjoyed it myself as well. It’s a great book to use at home and in the classroom. Whether you read it to your child or have them read and explore the book on your own, it is a great one to have on the bookshelf!

While we’re talking about DK findout! books you’ll want to head over to DK Canada and see what other books they’ve published in this series already. There’s a few that I’ve got my eye on already! πŸ™‚
