Liked Wonderstruck? Why not visit the American Museum of Natural History with the author?

Brian Selznick’s latest book Wonderstruck touched on a lot of different subjects and visited several places, with one of the most prominent being the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

During the holidays I visited AMNH to see their origami tree.

Thanks to Mr. Selznick and Scholastic, you can visit the museum any time–with Brian Selznick!–to see the different museum exhibits that played important parts in Wonderstruck from the Wolf Diorama to the Ahnighito Meteorite.

If you just want to jump in feet first here’s the actual tour video: http://www.scholastic.com/teachbrianselznick/assets/video.htm

(Thank you to Alexandra Wladich at Scholastic for sharing this super fun resource with me back in December.)
