How Did Your Locality Change in Victorian Times? by Jill Barber

Highly illustrated with colour photographs and diagrams, each spread addresses a particular topic. Text is clear and divided into easily digestible paragraphs, whilst key words are highlighted. Suggestion boxes throughout each book provide activities and tips for the reader, whilst a spread at the back for teachers and parents provides more activity suggestions, and advice on how to use the book with children.


This series addresses each topic with lots of photographs and diagrams plus clear text and highlighted key words. Good for report writing, data gathering and research activities in Year 6. The Bookseller Back to School Supplement
