About the book: 
An original look at history that profiles 30 children from different eras so that children of today can discover the lives of Aztecs, Romans, Vikings, and much more through the eyes of someone their own age.
 
History books often focus on adults, but what was the past like for children? A Child Through Time is historically accurate and thoroughly researched, and brings the children of history to life -from the Ice Age to ancient empires and medieval castles to the Wild West. Packed with facts and inc luding specially commissioned illustrations of the children and the places they lived, this book examines the clothes children wore, the food they ate, the games they played, and the historic moments they witnessed - all through their own eyes. Maps, timelines, and collections of objects, as well as a perspective on the often ignored topic of family life through the ages, give wider historical background and present a unique side to history.
 
Covering key curriculum topics in a new light, A Child Through Time is a perfect and visually stunning learning tool for children ages 7 and up.
