Fab - I intend to buy anything else like this that these authors write! Informative, but much less flippant than, say, the Horrible Histories books, although like that series it does have 'fun facts' scattered around. The craft activities are all easy to follow and use readily -available materials, and my four boys and I have enjoyed making some of them. It is a classic multi-sensory approach to studying history, making the topic much more fun than just reading about it would do. Brilliant to reinforce and energise studies at home or in school. We are home-educators, so I feel very pleased when I get hold of books like this and can really make the most of the luxury of being able to spend as much time as we like on a topic.
