Quiz Whiz: History by Dr. Jacob Field


Quiz Whiz: History by Dr. Jacob Field

Quiz Whiz is designed to be used in three ways: children can test themselves and each other with quick-fire quizzes; use the quizzes to gain straightforward question-and-answer information; or enjoy reading through the colourful, informative spreads and hunting for facts. Following on from Quiz Whiz and Quiz Whiz -- Nature, this third title in the series contains more than 300 questions and answers about history on its information-rich pages. The text is geared perfectly for the age group, with smaller paragraphs, larger fonts and eight questions per spread. One picture dominates most spreads to give focus and clarity to the subject.
