Review: 50 Natural Wonders to Blow Your Mind

Want to learn more about this wonderful world that we live in?   50 Natural Wonders to Blow your Mind is a book that will do that.  Pictures and words to delight and educate.  Learn more about this world than you thought you would.  :)
 So let me tell you about this little gem.

Starting at the back of the book is a list of each of the continents (and one ocean) that lists each of the natural wonders discussed.   I like that feature!   Means if I am doing a continent study I can easily pull up the relevant pictures and stories.

Each natural wonder is a two page layout.
The writing, always appears on the left, and is informative with a sense of humour at times.   Like if you want to visit cave, go through all the trouble of trying to get there, only to discover you aren't allowed in.  :)   Providing just enough information to whet your appetite for more.
Each image portrayed shows some aspect of the wonder discussed.  Giving a glimpse into the beauty to be discovered. 

It introduced me to Spotted Lake in British Columbia.

The book itself is divided into six sections
  • beach idyll
  • deep down
  • mountainous wonders
  • mystical and mythical
  • national parks
  • strange landscapes
My Thoughts:
 This is an interesting small book geared to introduce people to natural wonders throughout the world.  I was disappointed it didn't feature more of the natural wonders of Canada.  :)   But that's the selfish national pride part of me talking.  I was delighted to find examples of natural wonders from all the different continents.   A small, but fascinating book.  I can easily see giving this to my lad next year and saying..pick one, learn more, give me a report.
