J FIC: The Incredible yet True Adventures of Alexander von Humboldt by Volker Mehnert

October: Juvenile Fiction Pick

This book just blew me away.  Filled with magical illustrations, maps, sketches, quotes from the explorer’s journal and a great narrative of his travels this is a book to keep curious kids busy for hours.  Anyone with an interest in geography, animals, travel, history, and plants will be totally absorbed and impressed with this book!
