How We Make Stuff {Tuesday's Treasures}

It's been a busy week and this blog is looking a little neglected.  One positive is I found this amazing book at our local library.  It's called How We Make Stuff - The Story Behind our Everyday Things.

  • Format:  Hardback
  • Number of Pages:18 pages
  • ISBN 10: 1848777213
  • ISBN 13: 9781848777217
  • Author Christiane Dorian,
  • IllustratorBeverley Yong
This book is the winner of The English Association 2013 Prize for Non Fiction 7-11 years and it's easy to see why. It is amazing I am so impressed with it.  It is twaddle free and choc full of information. It's a pop up book with tabs to pull and learn and lots of lift up flaps and booklets. Each double page spread answers a question about the way we use the earths natural resources to make things.

It answers the following questions
  1. Who invented Factories ?
  2. Where do Burgers come from ?
  3. Does Chocolate grow on trees ?
  4. Where do clothes come from ?
  5. How do we turn trees into paper ?
  6. What are rubber ducks made of ?
  7. What is the link between gorillas and mobile phones ?
  8. What does disposable mean ?
  9. What can we learn from other creatures ?
Definitely add this one to your bookshelves your children will spend hours and hours looking through it and learning all sorts of wonderful things.


Welcome to Tuesdays Treasures. I started these posts as a way of sharing great books in honour of my friend in New Zealand who would arrive with the treasures she had unearthed at her weekly trip to the library!

There are so many wonderful books and Resources out there out there hiding on shelves and somewhere on the internet.

I invite you to blog about
