the story of everything

December 19, 2008


Last night I visited a bookshop in search of a special Christmas book for two very special little boys. Everything I picked up seemed dull and unoriginal until I pulled out The Story of Everything from the bookshelf. This amazing book tells kiddies the history of the world, starting with the Big Bang, through dinosaurs and the ice age until now. In, get this: just 11 explosive, wild pop-ups!

Neal Layton‘s illustrations have a little bit of untamed Quentin Blake about them, and there are tabs to pull, wheels to turn and even a mini book inside the book to read. Best of all, it’s all perfectly factual, which should either answer lots of questions, or lead to more from inquisitive tots. Suitable for ages 4 to 8.
