Synopsis

The Great Fire of London by Izzi Howell

Why Do We Remember?: The Great Fire of London describes the catastrophic fire that laid waste to much of London in September 1666. It explores how we know about the fire, from popular songs to diaries, and looks at how it led directly to the renaissance of London. This simple, friendly children's first history series, aimed at readers aged 5 and up, takes a close look at some key events and personalities through history and reveals how and why they are still important to us today. A perfect support to learning about history at Key Stage 1, each book uses a rich variety of historical sources, from diaries to paintings, to bring events to life, while simple historical vocabulary is introduced and explained. Each book also features a simple timeline and explores how we find about the past. All text has been carefully checked by a historian.

It is well-written and excellently illustrated, and poses questions that will encourage children to think about their learning Parents In Touch Delightful as an information source and an entertaining read ... a most satisfying approach to history for young children School Librarian
