A book that I recently acquired.

Like all books for younger readers that I register, this is done in memory of Becky, the daughter of a dear friend and fellow bookcrosser, ResQgeek, who was tragically killed in August 2010.

Review Every bit as solid and informative as the audioguide I listened to on my recent trip to Stonehenge, but geared for a younger audience. I learned a few things through the more detailed explanations with simpler language that I had not picked up on during the audiotour as well, including that the stones used to shape the saracen stones were round, rather than wedge-shaped as I had pictured them. An interesting read and an opportunity to sample some of my friend Cathy's work.

Picked this up at a past BCinDC meetup and just found it in a bag of books I haven't yet journaled! I can't wait to read it!

I read this a few months back for a challenge prompt (a book by a local author). Considering the author is a friend and fellow local BookCrosser, it fit the bill perfectly!

I've never visited Stonehenge, but it has always fascinated me. I liked all the different aspects of Stonehenge discussed in this book--some of the myth and theories involves, but also some of the science and history and discovery made. I didn't realize it had been built and added onto in multiple stages over so many years. I also learned a lot of the vocabulary terms for the different stones. I hope to one day visit this in person!

I was so excited to see this book today on the book pile at the June BCinDC meet up. All the books I have read by Catherine M. Petrini and fellow BookCrosser, are very good, well written and researched. They are listed as books for young readers but they have a lot of good and interesting info for readers of any age.

Caught at the BCinDC meetup today. I read Petrini's Dragons book and it was so much fun and informative. Can't wait to dive into this one!

Later: Another informative book! So much detail and presented in a way that a younger audience would be able to easily understand (and me!).
