The Great Fire of London by Liz Gogerly


The Great Fire of London by Liz Gogerly

This book combines good quality artwork and contemporary illustrations with simple, well-written text. Young readers will discover how the fire started, what devastation it caused and will be able to compare fire-fighting in 1666 to the present day. Photos of artefacts and original illustrations help bring the topic to life.


In the Beginning History series, text level and content correspond with the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority's key stage 1 units, and the spreads have large, dispersed text and bold captions. The books approach history using pictorial, photographic, archaeological and even some written evidence. TES Teacher budding historians get a genuine feel for a particular era. BBC History, January 2003 This excellent little book tells the story simply but without condescension and explains some of the causes and after effects. It is well illustrated with photographs, drawings and contemporary engravings. The quotations from people living at the time are well chosen and bring the books to life...splendid value.
