Book of Firsts

Book of Firsts edited by James Buckley Jr (Scholastic Australia)
PB RRP $12.99
ISBN 978-1-74169-682-0
Reviewed by Vicki Stanton 

Book of Firsts is a book everyone will love - children, parents, grandparents. It is full of facts organised into 11 different categories from Air and Space, to Medicine, and Exploration. Firsts from around the world are included but there are plenty of Australian firsts such as Australia's first dinosaur fossil and a list of Australia's female political pioneers. There's even some wacky firsts such as 'First Place to Use Gigantic Stone Disks for Money'.

Pick up the book and flip it open to any page and start reading. Well presented with quality paper and a layout utilising text boxes and large font, this book is perfect for reluctant readers. Trivia nuts will also welcome the opportunity to brush up on their knowledge. One for all the family and great value.
