DK Holiday Gift Boutique Has Fabulous Books

My daughter enjoyed making this 13" tall by 23" long Stegosaurus following the instructions and using the 100 sturdy photographic "bones" that was in the Make Your Own Stegosaurus kit. Both my children were entertained for hours till this project was completed. I like that this kit slots together without the need for glue.
This kit was created in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution for budding paleontologists to learn about this fascinating herbivore and create their own Stegosaurus model following clear, step-by-step instructions and photographs. This kit is based on a real Stegosaurus skeleton and the book teaches children about different aspects of the dinosaur. Make Your Own Stegosaurus is a fun, learning adventure for anyone who wants a hands-on experience with dinosaurs and would make a wonderful gift to get for the holidays.
LEGO® Star Wars® Brickmaster: Battle for the Stolen Crystals will be enjoyed by Star Wars® and LEGO® fans alike. We enjoyed building with the 180 bricks in this kit, and my son liked playing with the two mini figures and the built droids and battleships. 
LEGO® Star Wars® Brickmaster: Battle for the Stolen Crystals allows young fans to play out the thrilling four-part adventure story by building the models and taking them apart to build the next one. I wish it had enough parts to build without taking it apart. The 80 pages in this LEGO Star Wars brickmaster has clear step-by-step building instructions along with an exciting new story where kids can experience the adventure through their creations.
Marvel Year By Year: A Visual Chronicle take the readers on a century spanning voyage through eight tumultuous decades of Marvel Comics. It chronicles Marvel's story starting from 1939 and documents it month by month, year by year with commentary by Marvel experts and original artwork. Fabulous book for Marvel fans in all ages who want to learn everything about their favourite characters from Hulk, Spider man and many more.
Explorers is another awesome book that would make a wonderful gift for anyone interested in learning about the great tales of adventure and endurance that led to the discovery of many lands. Throughout history we know that exploration has arisen from the human impulses from desire to trade, colonizing new lands, scientific curiosity and missionary purposes.  This book focuses on 50 of the world's greatest explorers, with shorter entries on 60 of their helpers and companions, the book is filled with first-person accounts in the explorers' own words, rare maps, specially commissioned photographs, and artworks re-create history's greatest expeditions. 

There are a variety of keepsake books like the above available at the DK Holiday Gift Boutique that we can choose to give as gifts for holidays or special celebrations.
