Handsomely presented and full of information, this is an excellent book for any young person interested in a career in medicine. It’s divided into three sections: People Skills – described as the most important part of any doctor’s work; General Practice, full of information on the body, the special terms and language doctors use, and ways diagnoses are made; Surgeon, which describes what goes on in a hospital, with detailed looks at X-rays and keeping germs at bay. ‘Students’ of the academy learn by completing sets of activities and there are interactive tests throughout as well as practical activities like wrapping a sprained wrist, or identifying bones on an X-ray. Once each section is complete, children add a sticker before graduating to the next task. Added extras include a press-out model of a skeleton. ~ Andrea Reece One of a number of titles in the 'Academy' series. To go to our special 'Academy' series category click here.
A man with an obsession for straight lines and sharp angles is converted by a sudden encounter with nature and learns to live a happier, more relaxed life as a result in Thibaut Rassat’s quirky, thought-provoking book. Architect Eugene likes order and tries his hardest to impose it in his own home and on the buildings he designs where everything has to be straight, square and in line. The builders have fun teasing him by leaving bathtubs on the balconies, but they’re caught out themselves when Eugene suddenly changes his view of the world. What provokes it? When a tree falls into his latest building, Eugene is struck by its beauty and the beauty of its curves and proportions. From then on, straight lines are out and nature and making things nicer for wildlife well and truly in. It’s a book to give children real insight into what an architect does, and how, but it will also open their eyes to the beauty and unexpected order of the natural world.
Every day children watch parents head out of the door for the day to go to work. This eye-catching book shows them just what the grown-ups might be doing, illustrating fourteen different workplaces across stylish expansive pages. It starts with the familiar – what grown-ups do at school – then goes on to look at construction sites, hospitals, the farm, shops and more. There’s lots to look at in every spread and each of the grow-ups readers meet are then illustrated on the following page, with short sentences to explain what they do. A handsome book that provides lots of information and lots for children to talk about. ~ Andrea Reece
