Ben's Dream by Chris Van Allsburg

Ben's Dream is a fabulous book to help students learn research
skills. The book pictures ten landmarks from around the world
without identifying the names of the landmarks. The book lends
itself well to many research activities.

Visit some of these landmark sites to show your students some of
the wonders of the world.
