Want to learn more about this wonderful world that we live in? 50 Natural Wonders to Blow your Mind is a book that will do that. Pictures and words to delight and educate. Learn more about this world than you thought you would. 🙂
So let me tell you about this little gem.
Starting at the back of the book is a list of each of the continents (and one ocean) that lists each of the natural wonders discussed. I like that feature! Means if I am doing a continent study I can easily pull up the relevant pictures and stories.
Each natural wonder is a two page layout.
The writing, always appears on the left, and is informative with a sense of humour at times. Like if you want to visit cave, go through all the trouble of trying to get there, only to discover you aren’t allowed in. 🙂 Providing just enough information to whet your appetite for more.
Each image portrayed shows some aspect of the wonder discussed. Giving a glimpse into the beauty to be discovered.
It introduced me to Spotted Lake in British Columbia.
The book itself is divided into six sections
- beach idyll
- deep down
- mountainous wonders
- mystical and mythical
- national parks
- strange landscapes
This is an interesting small book geared to introduce people to natural wonders throughout the world. I was disappointed it didn’t feature more of the natural wonders of Canada. 🙂 But that’s the selfish national pride part of me talking. I was delighted to find examples of natural wonders from all the different continents. A small, but fascinating book. I can easily see giving this to my lad next year and saying..pick one, learn more, give me a report.
