You can see photos of these further on in the post. As you can see, the book covers a diverse range of topics. I thought that the chapter topics were well-chosen and engaging except maybe for Chapter 2, that was a bit dry but hopefully you can get past that lol. Pre-reading activities Each chapter has a little activity that can be done before actually beginning the chapter.
