Synopsis

The Second World War 1939-45 by Pam Robson

This book is ideal for school project work or for those who want an 'at-a-glance' overview of the Second World War. Complete with descriptions of the key events of the war, it tracks the progress of the battles and investigates how peace was finally achieved. The timeline, glossary and clearly-headed spreads make it easy to refer to essential dates, facts and personalities. Maps, contemporary photography, paintings, posters and pictures of artefacts all help bring the topic to life.

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!

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.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

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.
