National Geographic Childhood Wonders

December 19, 2010

The Classic Treasury of Childhood Wonders
written by Susan H. Magsamen
National Geographic, 2010

Open the book to the painting “Snowball Fight” by Rudolf Bergander. Just across the page is a poem about snow, “Beautiful Snow” by John W. Watson and two quotations about snow. “Where does the white go when the snow melts?” is one.

Now turn the page for information and ideas for playing in the snow. Just across the page are directions for how to make a snow family.

This is the essence of Childhood Wonders – a little bit of everything in outdoor exploring, making things, magic and make-believe, and food and bedtime.

If you need a gift idea for a parent or caregiver, this would be it. Filled with whimsical, colorful drawings and illustrations, this book offers imaginative ideas for play and wonder for all seasons and ages.
