"Historium Activity Book" by Jo Nelson and Richard Wilkinson (Big Picture Press)

Big Picture Press's "Museum" books are (deservedly) titles to be reckoned with!
In fact we'd go as far as to say that both Animalium and Historium have been our most thumbed-through non-fiction books of the last few years. Dazzlingly written and illustrated, we can't help but crave more.

So it's rather fortunate then that today marks the release of the "Historium Activity Book" - A new title using the original Historium as the inspiration for a brilliant mix of colouring, drawing, puzzling and historical facts gathered together in a mighty long-summer-holiday-defeating tome.

The release is perfectly timed as I can see this being used an awful lot as the long summer hols kick in and boredom replaces the heady excitement of not being in school.

Thankfully there's more than enough in this book to keep your children occupied.

It's out today, so pop down to your local indie bookshop and grab a copy, break out your best colouring and drawing pens, pencils and crayons and get busy making history!
