Books we bought in April/May

Books by David Macaulay with beautiful illustration. Gives detail explanation on how castles, cathedral, cities and the underground network are built.
'Roman Diary' tells the story of a slave girl's life in ancient Rome and this book has beautiful illustration, 'It could always be worse' is a sweet picture book about a Yiddish folk tale with beautiful illustration and 'The Case of the Gasping Garbage' is a mystery book. 
LIFE collection of beautiful photographs of sea creatures and wonders of the world.  'Eye Witness History' by National Geographic uses the timeline approach to give us a clear picture of world history whereas 'The History Book' by DK uses a more child friendly approach to present world history
