This is quite a clever book in my opinion. The illustrations are engaging, the text is informative and in the book (unlike in my e-galley), there are flaps to lift; I don’t know about you but I always found flap lifting to be fun when I read with my children.
In this book, children are invited to find a missing movie reel. Along the way, they are presented with an appealing history of communication. There are small boxes on each two page spread that are filled with interesting facts. Children can learn about everything from the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, to telegraphs, to the discovery of graphite, to the printing press, telephones and of course, the movies. All are presented in a way that makes learning easy and fun.
I highly recommend this one to both kids and adults. You will all be entertained.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this enjoyable book. The opinions are entirely my own.
Here are some examples of the illustrations from the book.
