We love DK books. As a teacher I used them in my class to engage students who are not interested in traditional (read: boring text, limited images) textbooks. As a mom, I love them for shared reading time. I often find my 5 year-old will flake out on the couch with a few of them and ‘read’ quietly by herself. Although she isn’t quite at the stage where she can read the bulk of the text it’s amazing how much she can understand from the headings and images. As we looked through our latest DK books,I asked her a few questions:
“Because they could find out how to make a mummy or how to build a pyramid. And that’s cool and gross – but cool. Are people allowed to make mummies? Like in their house?”
