The Book of Dust

The Book of Dust, I am not sure what I was thinking when I picked this book up for the first time.  I know it was not typical of what I read but in an instant I was captivated.  It wasn’t for a couple of hours later that I put it down, but given its size I had barely made a dent in it.  This did not matter to me as I wanted to know so much more and the mystery surrounding Lyra Belacqua intrigued me.

Explanatorium of Nature

My words will not do this book justice, because I can barely find the words for the up-close photography gives you a look at animals and nature like you have never seen before.  The front of the book drew me in the first time I saw it, its beauty doesn’t just lie in its shiny cover though, the pages within are captivating and the information will keep you immersed for hours.

What’s Up Top

So what is up to? That is what we are left wondering when we get to the end of the book, but throughout the story the children’s imagination is fed and inspired. From pages with almost nothing on a it to busy pages with baboons and giraffes our goal is to think about what is on top of the cheeky ladder.
