Synopsis

Tools of Navigation A Kid's Guide to the History and Science of Finding Your Way by Rachel Dickinson

Children will learn all about inventions: their inventors, the way they changed history, and their evolution over centuries, through the activities and anecdotes provided in this interactive series. Travel through the past and into the future to explore the history of human navigation, from the crude maps of early explorers to the satellite-based Global Positioning System (GPS) of today. This guide to learning about geography, trade routes over land and sea, and navigational tools and people who used them, is supplemented with 15 hands-on projects and educational activities to expand world view and build navigational confidence.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
