Steven Zorn

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

19 Mar 2002 Start Exploring
Our Start Exploring(TM) introductory texts, presented in coloring-book form, are enjoyed by adults as well as children. They provide superb introductions to complex subjects in a simple, accessible way. This fascinating coloring book provides a fact-filled look at the world of lighthouses, which appeal to so many because they evoke a romantic vision of the ocean. Through informative text and ready-to-color illustrations, readers will learn about the history of these picturesque and practical structures. In writing appropriate for children -- but also informative enough to engage adults -- the book explores the best known lighthouses in the United States and Canada, with folklore and statistics on each. Intriguing sidebars focus on lenses, technology, and interior architecture of these unique sentinels of the sea.
