See review for Take Me To Museums.— From Kelly
Take Me Home is the latest in an exciting series of guided journals for young explorers. Crammed with facts, lively illustrations and inspiring activities, it's perfect for spending creative time at home - just the thing for homeschool groups, or for parents looking for interesting after-school and rainy-day activities. With this fun-filled book as their guide, children don't need to go further than their own front door to discover new things
Each chapter of Take Me Home is filled with activities that encourage children to explore the place where they live, jot down their ideas and draw what they see. As they discover new facts, make lists, and answer questions they are prompted to look at their own home in new ways - observing its different spaces and the objects that fill it.
Fun, quirky and bursting with information about homes throughout history; architecture and design; the way things work; and the artists and writers whose stories are inspired by living spaces; this book is the perfect gift for curious and creative children.
