Synopsis

Heroes and Heroines by Eleanor Farjeon, Herbert Farjeon

Heroes and Heroines was first published in 1933, and features the same style of witty and lyrical poems as Kings and Queens of England. It tells of the deeds of heroes and heroines from all round the world including Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Robin Hood, Christopher Columbus, Sir Francis Drake, George Washington, Napoleon, Florence Nightingale and Buffalo Bill, among others. Both books present a fun and original way for children to learn history.

Reviews

Kings and Queens and Heroes and Heroines are timeless peeks into world history for many reasons, but the exuberant presentation cannot be discounted. For a dip into some great lives, you can't beat these two books./i> --Colleen Mondor Bookslut

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
