“100 Things to Know about History”
Brilliant! I spent a long time in the book shop looking for inspiring books for my daughter to read in the car. This have interesting striking facts (even for adults) described very simply with clear graphics/drawings. Also is not filled with only morbid/gruesome facts about history like other children books.
