Synopsis

Kids Only by Dr. Miranda MacQuitty

The Kids Only guide to the Natural History Museum, London has been designed especially for kids to enjoy at the Museum and at home. It is packed with fascinating facts and fun for all the family including puzzles, games and quizzes. The guide has been developed around themes that showcase all of the Museum galleries. Each theme is based on a question - what is a dinosaur? What is ecology? How old is the Earth? - that can be explored within the galleries. The book also goes beyond the galleries to explore behind the scenes at the Museum including what Museum scientists do, what's in the vast collections and why they are so useful. This fun, interactive guide incorporates the latest Museum map and can be dipped into as necessary, or used to follow a route through the galleries. It is complemented by the Museum website and will make the Museum more accessible to those unable to visit.
