NAME: Battle of Britain, sticker and activity book CLASSIFICATION: Book Reviews FILE: R1562 DATE: 061009 AUTHOR: PUBLISHER: Haynes BINDING: Soft back PAGES: 24 PRICE: GB £4.99 GENRE: Non fiction SUBJECT: RAF, 1940, Battle of Britain ISBN:978-1-84425-464-4 IMAGE: B1562.jpg LINKS: http://tinyurl.com/ DESCRIPTION: In developing a list of aviation and military history titles, the publisher has not neglected the important junior reader. In an age of video games and computer simulators far too many publishers overlook the young reader and complain about the demise of book reading. This Battle of Britain book follows what was once a common approach to interesting the young in reading books and developing interests in non fiction topics. Priced at a level within reach of pocket money or gifts from fond grand parents, aunts and uncles, this also makes an ideal Christmas stocking present. The collection of stickers, flight cards, plane puzzles and facts takes the young reader through the story of the Battle of Britain in a way that involves the reader and stimulates thought and activity. Hopefully, this and other books in the series will develop the reader of tomorrow. It may be that the future reader will handle an eBook reader rather than a printed paper book but until activity books can be replicated electronically, there is no substitute for the sticker and activity book. As part of the proceeds from this book go to supporting the RAF Museum, it is helping to maintain the artefacts of warplane history.
