The Story of the First World War for Children 1914-1918 by John Malam

The First World War was total war on an unprecedented scale. Industrialized nations engaged in mechanized warfare, deploying new and terrifying weapons: airplanes, tanks, zeppelins, giant warships, and poison gas. Using archival photos, maps, and drawings, this fact-packed book explains to children what happened and why, and tells the human stories in a way that brings history vividly 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!

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.
