LoveReading View on The Secrets of Stonehenge

April 2013 Non-Fiction Book of the Month  The incredible story of the building of the mighty Stonehenge is brought to life in the action-packed illustrations to this book. How such a feat was achieved without the help of any technology has always been a cause of wonder. Here, the story of how the stones were dragged for many miles, how they were heaved into position and how they were cleverly fitted together so that the building would last, is visually re-enacted while the history of the time and what we know about how man managed 5,000 years ago is explained in the text and accompanying speech bubbles.
