Be open to learning: Curiositree: Human World

A visual history of humankind

by AJ Wood; Mike Jolley

#CuriositreeHumanWorld #NetGalley

This title for elementary school kids hopes to arouse their curiosity for our world in all of its interesting complexity. It consists of a series of charts and maps on topics as diverse as farming, armor, cities, and technology to name just a few. This book which covers a vast time frame is not a book to read straight through but more one to dip into time and again.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto for this title. All opinions are my own.

Author: joycesmysteryandfictionbookreviews

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
