Deserts by Nancy F. Castaldo

Book Review

Deserts by Nancy F. Castaldo

Ages 7-12 (Although the subtitle is, "An Activity Guide for Ages 6-9," I think it's a little complex for a six year old and has plenty of depth for older kids. Put a sticker over the subtitle if your child is older!)

Any kid interested in deserts will find something to love in this book. There are over 100 pages of information, activities, and experiments related to deserts around the world. Each chapter focuses on one region and includes crafts from the local culture, recipes, science, and animal lore, all illustrated with lovely pencil sketches.
