Amazing Treasures is bursting with over 100 amazing things from around the world. It is the second instalment in the Our Amazing World Series by Blue Peter Book Award winner, David Long. History, geography, culture and the environment are studied from a fascinating point of view.
What makes a treasure? There are so many answers to this question. In Amazing Treasures, readers are taken on a journey around the world to see a host of objects and places that people think are important and valuable. From gold and jewels to famous paintings to arctic sea ice to rare species of animals, we can find treasure everywhere.
Concepts such as ownership, theft and collecting are addressed prompting readers to think critically about what we should do with items from the past and the things we discover. Mysteries and legends (some of the most exciting aspects of treasures) are also shared, encouraging awe and wonder about the amazing things in our world.
There is so much in this fantastic book. The information is presented in bite-sized chunks making it perfect for dipping into and coming back to again and again. Amazing Treasures would be a huge hit in any classroom library and would also make a lovely gift.
