This CD includes 18 books that run in My Own Bookshelf®. Books are written in a narrative style and cover a wide range of subjects, including many real life experiences. Students get to watch a parade, a buffalo round up, beekeepers at work, and a hot air balloon launch. Photos and movies enliven visits to a baker, a butcher, a kangaroo farm, and more. From the top of Mount Kilimanjoro to the museum of the terracotta warriors in China, The Magic Bookshelves is a feast of good self-selected reading material.
