I remember leafing through Eyewitness books from the school library as a child. I loved looking at the photographs and taking in the wealth of information about a variety of subjects. I shared a few months ago that the Eyewitness series are now available in paperback and now there is a new title – Eyewitness Amazon to join the growing collection of paperback eyewitness books found in DK Canada’s Eyewitness Boutique.
Applying the award-winning Eyewitness formula to the subject of the largest and most bio-diverse tract of tropical rain forest in the world, Eyewitness: The Amazon profiles this incredible habitat — including the birds, animals, and insects that live there to the nine South American countries it extends across.
This uniquely beautiful illustrated guide dives into the beauty and diversity of the Amazon: the rain forest and the river; its flora, fauna, and life cycles; and the people who live in the region.
Whether your child has a special interest in space exploration or the origins of the universe, or you want to supplement classroom curriculum about the universe by making more resources available to your child outside of school, Eyewitness: Universe is the ideal choice for learning more about the universe.
DK’s Eyewitness series is perfect for children. It engages both readers and visual learners by presenting information with a combination of photography, small nuggets of information, and fact-packed annotation so children can really dig into topics without becoming overwhelmed. One picture at a time, Eyewitness books teach big subjects in easy ways.
We’ve revamped our Eyewitness series to be even better with solid facts, shorter texts, more emphasis on images, and fresh new learning sections, making Eyewitness books the perfect way to encourage curiosity in your child or to supplement classroom learning.
In Eyewitness: Ancient Rome, travel back in time and discover one of history’s most remarkable civilizations — from its vast empire and astounding engineering feats to the menu at a Roman dinner party. Explore the inside of the Colosseum and the battles that were fought within. Images and supported text throughout the book showcase the pottery, weapons, and other objects Ancient Romans left behind, the architecture they created, the gods they worshiped, family life, transportation, travel, trade, and more, giving an eyewitness account of this incredible empire.
Each book retains the stunning artworks and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. Still on every colorful page: Vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that makes Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.
