This is a fabulous pictorial guide to the world’s people and events from 10,000 BC to the present. Highly illustrated, it presents a dramatic insight into what the world was like during key historical periods – the Ancient world, Medieval times, Exploration and Empire through to the Modern industrialised world. Packed with information about civilizations, empires, religions, colonization, exploration, kingdoms and famous figures, this Children’s Atlas of World History is a wonderful reference book to dip into whenever the mood takes you.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
