Welcome the New School Year with DK Canada!

Do you hear that? It is the sound of the first bell of the new school year about to ring in the next few weeks. Are your kids not enthusiastic to head back to class this year? DK Canada wants to change this feeling with their collection of books to help kids to want to learn and get back into the swing of things this September. They asked if my family would want to welcome in the new school year by reviewing some titles from their huge catalogue.

Since my kids are always curious about themselves and the world around them, I chose to review these three titles:

The Elements Book

Remember those glorious days in science class learning about the different elements found on our planet? Do you ever want to learn more about them? The Elements Book allows readers to discover the 118 chemical elements found in the periodic table through incredible images and fantastic facts.

My kids and I learned so much about each of the elements. Many of them I had rediscovered and became fascinated with. One of the sections I really enjoyed was the one designated to oxygen. Its importance to life on Earth is undeniable, but it amazing to learn about the numerous ways we use it.

Super Earth Encyclopedia

It is hard to explore everything on Earth in order to see how miraculous it is. Super Earth Encyclopedia helps readers to experience various geographical features, structures and patterns that are a part of our planet without having to leave home.

We were not aware of the black smokers that reside on mid-ocean ridges. To know that these chimneys of dissolved minerals from ocean-floor rocks help to regulate the temperature of the Earth’s core was awesome to learn about. We also find out that the hottest water on the planet is located near the bottom of the ocean.

Human Body!

Why do we blink? What is our hair made of? Why do our knees bend the way they do? These are just a few of the questions we get get peppered with by our kids about their bodies. That is why I thought it would be perfect for them to have Human Body! at home. The 3-D imagery used in this title helps readers to learn more about our bodies from the inside-out and from head to toe.

My eldest was curious about the inner workings of her mouth. She loved the “Teeth and chewing” section of this book because she was able to see the amount of teeth a child has compared to an adult, why teeth are so important, what they are made of and the about of chewing power we have when eating.

What sets these three books apart from others books is the imagery. Whether it is an actual photo or an image, learning pops off the page. Readers can take in the information they are learning and enjoy what they have picked up.

We really enjoyed reading these three books from DK Canada to welcome the new school year. The information they learned from each title will help them get a base knowledge of what they will be learning in their studies. The details shared on each of the pages also makes learning easier and fun, so it will be retained for future reference. These books are enthralling that they will be read over and over by our family for years to come!
