48HBC: If Stones Could Speak

Checking in again... I just finished If Stones Could Speak: Unlocking the Secrets of Stonehenge by Marc Aronson and I'll be posting a full review for an upcoming Nonfiction Monday. It was just what I would expect from Mr. Aronson - meticulously researched and documented and written in a way that encourages kids to question, to seek their own answers, and to keep looking at history with fresh eyes. Because if you do that, who knows what you'll find??

This'll be my last 48-Hour Book Challenge Update for the evening - I am going to crawl into bed and hope to get a few chapters read before my eyes close on me...
