‘Amazing Islands’ by Sabrina Weiss and Kerry Hyndman is a beautifully illustrated book, chock full of valuable information about islands around the world. From discussion of what an island is to how islands are made, on to people who live on islands, and a world map that shows a smattering of all of the islands in the world, there is so much more to islands than initially meets the eye (or thought process).
The back of the book contains a glossary and pronunciation guide that engage readers further, making it so that they will have the necessary knowledge to read about and discuss the topics in the book in a more focused manner.
For those who travel or just love the idea of it, there is so much to learn and so much to enjoy in this book. There is tons of trivia to read about and so many connections to be made to history, nature, daily life, and so much more. The information on each page is presented in easily digestible paragraphs scattered throughout the pages to cover a variety of different topics. It is a thoroughly enjoyable book that will keep readers turning the pages.
