Discoveries from Here and Beyond with DK Canada Books

Discoveries are what get my family hungry to learn. We are always looking into new topics we have heard about for more information. DK Canada understands our thirst for discovery. They have a collection of books that allow readers to jump right into learning. My family was asked if we would like to receive three books to help us enjoy discoveries from here and beyond. We were excited to start discovering with these books.

Below are the three books my family received to begin our learning discoveries:

Discoveries about ourselves

There are various beliefs and practices people follow where medicine is concerned. The great thing about this field is that it is always evolving with new discoveries. Medicine  takes readers through this vast area of study. From ancient time to the present day, Medicine shares the history of numerous notable figures, theories and practices in medicine for readers to discover. Beautiful images and diagrams help to share this journey with readers.

One great part of this book is learning about the differences in thought about how the human body functions throughout our history. “The Anatomy Revolution” section of Medicine focuses on how these beliefs have changed. Learning how Anderas Vesalius was inspired to change the way we see the human body by the anatomical illustrations by Leonardo Da Vinci was fascinating to read. I would not have gained this bit of knowledge without delving into this great read.

Discoveries about what lies beyond our borders

I am a HUGE fan of astronomy. I have been looking up at the stars since I was a child, and I still want to learn more about our universe. Smithsonian Universe  takes readers of all ages on a deep space exploration of the cosmos.

I gravitated towards the “History of the Constellations” section of this book. I love learning about the many astronomers, ancient and modern and the number of times the skies. Due to their findings, the stars we see have changed. The Atlas Coelestis image created by John Flamstead really brings the skies, in both hemispheres, to life for star gazers.

Danger discoveries, big and small 

Our family love learning about animals. We are always amazed to learn something new about the creatures we share this planet with. Reading Nature’s Deadliest Creatures: A Visual Encyclopedia introduces 150 dangerous creatures come together to begin educating young readers. This book shares animals all areas of the animal kingdom. Each animal profiled in this book has snippets of information about what makes them so dangerous.

My son is an avian fanatic. He loves knowing why the golden eagle is so dangerous. My son thought it was awesome that this predatory bird is able to hunt animals like foxes and cats. His favourite part of the golden eagle is its talons and how strong they are. I only take issue with the amount of details given in this book. I wish there were more information about each animal featured. My kids have many more questions after getting our feet wet with the creatures in this book.

We were able to see gaze the skies with a new understanding of it with Smithsonian UniverseNature’s Deadliest Creatures: A Visual Encyclopediaintroduced us to a new respect for animals big and small. We love that we are always finding fun discoveries, both here and beyond, with these titles from DK Canada!
