#Review:Kids Want To Know About Mysterious Places by J.W. Patterson #atozchallenge





Summary:
Discover facts and opinions about some of the most mysterious places in the world. Did you know that actors making the movie "Gettysburg" in 2003 had an incredible ghostly experience? Did you know that the Bigelow Ranch in Utah has been the scene of reported crop circles, UFO landings and ghosts? 

Kids will learn what is known and not known about many mysterious places. Are these places really where strange happenings occur? Kids can make their own minds up about them. 


My review:
When I was a kid, I was fascinated about all sorts of things, in fact, I still am.  I would look up things in the encyclopedia or even the dictionary until I was satisfied with what I had found. To even find photos or maps of places was even a bigger deal. I often even perused National Geographic.

What the author has done here is taken all of those wonderful mysterious places and put them in one book. Awesome! I enjoyed that he wrote about some of the places I am still curious about like Easter Island, crop circles, and Stonehenge. 

He introduces theories of different people including the idea of aliens. I did find the different places to be told in brief so, more investigation might be warranted after the initial introductions.

This book is targeted for kids as young as 9 years old up to 18 year old's. There is no doubt that adults would like this book too. I did! This is one in a series of different discovery books.

I give this book 4 stars.

Disclosure: I purchased a Kindle copy of this book for my own use. The views expressed here are 100% my own and may differ from yours.
