Member Price $13.46
In 13 Buildings Children Should Know, the world's most iconic buildings are made accessible and exciting for young readers. Children's fascination with buildings is a natural outgrowth of their curiosity about anything strange or huge or complex. This book brings together thirteen architectural wonders that have intrigued children for years.
Through activities such as games, quizzes, drawings and other activities, this book teaches them the history behind each of the buildings, and presents fascinating facts about the design, historical use, and construction techniques. It features pyramids built by men with pulleys, a tower that leans, an opera house shaped like a sailboat, a museum built like a spiral, and a "bird's nest" stadium where the 2008 summer Olympics were held. Each of these buildings are introduced through lively texts and illustrations.
