(NAPSI)—Grandparents who want to give a gift that is both fun and informative may consider giving a gift that can last a lifetime—the love of books and reading.

To help, here are a few examples of books for young people from DK Books:

• Readers can discover all there is to know about one of the world’s most beloved toy companies with “The LEGO Book.”

• For children for whom “dinosaurs” is a magic word, there’s “Make Your Own T. Rex.” Grandparents can pitch in and help young readers construct a 2-foot cardboard model of T. rex and learn fun facts as they build together.

• “Super Nature” is an interactive look at the “wow” factor of the natural world. It spotlights great white sharks, emperor moths, howler monkeys and many of the world’s most fascinating animals in remarkable detail.

• Children with a passion for horses are likely to be pleased with “Horses: The Ultimate Treasury,” an illustrated guide to this amazing world.

• For young people fascinated by visual tricks, try picking up “Optical Illusions.” Each time readers turn the page, lift the flaps or pull the tabs, they’ll find another amazing sight.

• Children delighted with art and self-expression are likely to enjoy “Doodlepedia.” This is a fact-packed drawing and coloring book that just may change the way you and your grandchildren look at learning.

DK publishes books for children from preschool to high school. Those whose grandchildren live mainly in a digital world will be glad to know that DK offers many of its children’s titles in an e-book format.
