Natural Disasters (DK Eyewitness Books)
Author: Claire Watts
Publisher: DK Children
Publication date: 2006
ISBN: 0756620724
Number of pages: 72

Format / Quality: PDF
Size: 23.9MB

The planet Earth is a restless place. Frequently our lives are disrupted by natural disasters of all kinds. There are earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, landslides, avalanches, tornadoes, floods, and other events which cause hardship for countless numbers of people. Perhaps most frightening in this day and age is the worry about what climate change – global warming – is going to do to our planet and our futures.
In this fascinating book readers will discover why many of these disasters occur. They will learn that powerful forces beneath and across the Earth’s surface can suddenly unleash catastrophic events and at times humans have very little warning about what is going to happen. In addition the author explores in detail some of the more famous disasters of recent years including Hurricane Katrina and the December 26 2004 tsunami which caused widespread destruction in Asia.
Each double page spread includes a short well written section of text which is perfectly complimented by annotated photographs. Some of the pages also have informative diagrams and maps which will help readers understand some of the principles discussed in the text. For example in the “Landslides and Avalanches” pages readers will be able to see why and how a landslide forms. On the “Earth’s Atmosphere” pages readers are shown how the atmosphere is made up of layers and how winds racing across the surface of the globe carry weather types from one part of the globe to another.
This book is one of the titles in the much loved Eyewitness series and it will engage the interest if readers of all ages.

Forensic Science (DK Eyewitness Books)

Publication date: 2008
ISBN: 0756633837
Number of pages: 72

Format / Quality: PDF
Size: 19.7MB

Forensic Science is the use of scientific methods and knowledge to investigate crime. The word "forensic" comes from the Latin forum and means presenting and interpreting scientific information in court. Forensic scientists study evidence at the scene of a crime and perhaps at the homes and workplaces of suspects. They study the bodies of victims. Many sciences, from chemistry to engineering to entomology (the study of insects), are used in an investigation. If there is any doubt about what has happened, forensic science provides evidence that may link a suspect to a crime or prove him or her innocent. Experts investigate not only murder, assault, and bank robbery, but also smuggling animals or people, or committing fraud on the Internet - crimes of all types.

This book presenting a fascinating look at the tools and techniques used by forensic scientists in solving crimes-from fingerprint analysis to DNA testing.

Arms & Armor (DK Eyewitness Books)
Author: Michele Byam
Publisher: DK Children
Publication date: 2004
ISBN: 0756606541
Number of pages: 72
Format / Quality: PDF
Size: 9.72MB

In a world where even toy guns are reviled by pacifistic parents there exists the extraordinary Eyewitness Book Arms & Armor. Studying weaponry is an unusual, fascinating angle on human history, as people have always used weapons to hunt, defend themselves, or attack. This intriguing photo essay examines the design, construction, and use of hand weapons and armor--from the Stone Age axe to the revolvers and rifles of the Wild West.
In the tradition of the Eyewitness series, Arms & Armor begins with a short introduction to prehistoric weapons, accompanied by a photograph-rich spread with fascinating, history-packed, fun-fact-loaded captions. The Los Angeles Times Book Review says the Eyewitness Books are "like a mini-museum between the covers of a book," and they are right! From crude Paleolithic hand axes, we progress to missile weapons; the first warriors (and the effect of the discovery of copper and bronze on tools and weapons); the weapons of the armies of ancient times; weapons from the Dark Ages; European swords; crossbows versus longbows; axes, daggers, and knives; plate and mail armor; Indian warriors; Japanese samurais; early firearms; flintlock firearms; dueling swords; dueling pistols ("Although illegal, for centuries dueling was a popular way for 'gentlemen' and army officers to settle their quarrels," the section begins); bizarre, extraordinary, seemingly impractical hand weapons; grenadiers and cavalry; pistols; "Guns that won the West"; North American Indian weapons; and, believe it or not, more. This book is sure to find an audience with youngsters obsessed with knights and times medieval, art-history buffs, amateur historians, or anyone with a penchant for pistols. (Ages 9 to 12)

American Revolution (DK Eyewitness Books)
Author: Stuart Murray
Publisher: DK Children
Publication date: 2005
ISBN: 0756610593
Number of pages: 66
Format / Quality: PDF
Size: 36.4MB

The American war for independence and its aftermath shaped the brand-new nation and provided many of the patriotic heroes and legends that are still celebrated today. In this handsome and informative addition to DK's Eyewitness series, many of the finer details of life during the Revolutionary War are explored, including, of course, the political backdrop, powerful leaders such as the young George Washington, and dramatic battles. This is no dry textbook, however. Readers will also discover exactly what kind of clothing soldiers wore, and see actual photos of weapons, snuff boxes, restored original fighting vessels, and the silver inkstand used by Congressional delegates as they signed the Declaration of Independence. Spy methods are described, Loyalists and patriots are defined, and the symbols and songs of war and freedom are explained. Even a subject as old and oft-told as the American Revolution is made fresh by D.K.'s compelling photos and enlightening text.

Eyewitness: Train
Author: John Coiley
Publisher: DK Children
Publication date: 2000
ISBN: 0789457563

Number of pages: 64

Format / Quality: PDF
Size: 23MB


Grade 4-8-- Arranged in approximate chronological order, each of the two-page chapters has the same busy format. Many feature large full-color photos across the bottom of the spread and all have a single paragraph of text on the top of the left-hand page. Numerous small, full-color and black-and-white photos and reproductions with lengthy, small-print captions abound. This haphazard arrangement may cause confusion for some readers as there appears to be no pattern for the eye to travel across or down the page. In addition to the general historical information, topic treatments include the signal tower, royal trains, record breakers, station operation, monorails, model trains, and trains of the future. Because of the book's British origin, readers may find the single chapter on the American railroad inadequate. Consider this for train enthusiasts and casual browsers who enjoy the series.

Eyewitness: Soccer
Author: Hugh Horrnby
Publisher: DK Children
Publication date: 2000
ISBN: 0789452456
Number of pages: 64

Format / Quality: PDF
Size: 11MB

Grade 3-7-From its origins to the latest World Cup finals, Hornby covers the history of the sport. Brief discussions of such topics as shoes, uniforms, equipment, and the evolution of the rules are also included. Like other "Eyewitness" titles, the pages are jam-packed with trivia illustrated by numerous full-color photographs of players and memorabilia that will please fans. However, despite a picture of Mia Hamm on the cover, only men are discussed in the sections on famous teams and players and a mere five paragraphs in the entire book reference women. While Gary Lineker's Soccer (2000) or The Young Soccer Player (1994, both DK) focus on the skills and basic rules, Hornby vividly captures the legacy of the sport. His book may not be used as frequently as those describing soccer skills and drills, but it will find a place for those wanting to trace the history of the sport.
