A few months ago the children learnt about the seven wonders of the ancient world and it really sparked a big interest for them in ancient history. I was really thrilled when Wonders of the World arrived a few weeks back.
Written by Isabel Otter and illustrated by Margaux Carpentier this book is the perfect intro for children to the ancient and modern wonders of the world. The book is well set out and starts with a map that shows the location of both the ancient and modern wonders. It’s always interesting to see where they are located and to get children to think about why that is.
There is a page for each wonder completed with lift the flaps and the such. There’s plenty of information about each one, but not too much that it becomes overwhelming. There are some great facts and snippets of information and it’s made me want to learn more about the wonders myself.
The book ends with a section about natural wonders and an impressive pop up which wowed Daniel when he turned the page!
Wonders of the World is well thought out with big bold and bright illustrations. It is the perfect introduction to the truly spectacular wonders and I think it will form a unit study for the children in the next month or two.
At the time of this review, my children were almost six years, 4.5 years and 2 years old. This post contains affiliate links and we were gifted this book by the publisher
