Press reviews

“It would be an excellent ‘spine’ for your history studies. There are many internet links throughout the book which invite the child to explore and learn more about a historical event or time period, as well as links to free downloadable maps and pictures. These internet links would have taken me ages to source, this book has done it all for you.”
