"I defy kids–and adults–not to pick it up." -Entertainment Weekly
PICK ME UP is an uber cool book that kids will actually READ (really!) with topics that include Beethoven to Bangali, dinosaurs to aerodynamics. Geared for ages 10 and up, the book explains the world through smart, fun and witty writing and a modern presentation– making it an easy read. It’s a reference book plus so much more and is more like the "un-encyclopedia" for the GEN -I.. (internet generation). Full of 411 about history, science, nature, geography and culture, along with a healthy dose of pop culture, it provides a book that will amuse and even educate while they are reading. Think of it as the modern day version of a one person Trivial Pursuit if you will. It’s inspired and presented a la video games and internet so it definitely will "reach" your teen/tween with its approach in this multi-media world. It integrates nicely in helping them go to their search engine to learn even more.
