You Wouldn't Want To Be....


This book by David Stewart and David Salariya is one of our favorite books. It cracks me up! It is full of wonderful facts and humor- especially the weird and disgusting. For example, on the page where you are learning about the gross procedures to mummification, a dog can be seen in the background running away with an arm in it's mouth.
There are a bunch of them from a sailor with Christopher Columbus to Vikings to Aztec human sacrifices. We check them out from the library over and over again. If you haven't read them yet, go to the library now! you won't be disappointed.
*p.s.- today is the last day for my little game so I will be getting back on the winners and stuff shortly.

i'm always looking for good books, i'm taking a reading and content class this semester, and so i'm really into books right now, they're like forbiodden fruit because i just don't have time to read for fun, so short fun books are a nice break
