How We Make Stuff: The Story Behind Our Everyday Things
by Christianne Dorion, illustrated by Beverley Young
Amazing pop-up book that shows how everyday things such as clothes and mobile phones go from being raw materials to our homes. This book has pop-up pictures and tabs that will attract the attention of children of all ages, along with written text so that you can explain how oil eventually becomes a rubber duck, for example, in more detail. In showing how many objects are disposed of, the book also has a subtle environmental message. A clever book that makes learning fun. To be honest, I enjoyed reading it, and learning from it, as much as my children did!
