Do Not Open

Same goes for Do Not Open (DK, $24.99). This encyclopedia of the world’s best kept secrets has some trademark DK flourishes. The title of course is brilliant. Next the book is recessed in box that looks like a little jail cell complete with barred cover. Entries are brief and visually exciting. From the different versions we learn of Christopher Columbus—okay was he a hero or a tyrant?—to what has been sucked into the Bermuda Triangle, Do Not Open is a great book for exploration and discovery in small group classroom work or the back seat of the car. Start that wonderful practice of having kids read aloud their most exciting discoveries.
