CD Price: $15.00
Review:
The information on this CD will appeal to science/math-minded youngsters, especially boys (even those not particularly interested in traditional stories/folklore). Kate Dudding begins with the story behind Augustin Fres-nel's development of lenses that are used in today's lighthouses. Subsequent segments continue the intrigue of how lighthouses are built, along with their mysteries and histories. The stories of specific lighthouse keepers and of some who lost their lives in lighthouses are revealed through these narrations. The final story discloses the history of how the Statue of Liberty was built. In all, this CD contains an inspiring body of history, science, and math information associated with lighthouses.
