A great book to learn about the History of childhood, 1 Oct 2009
I was not sure whether I would be able to read this book from cover to cover. However, once picked up I could not put down. This book gives some fantastic insights into the historical concept of childhood, childhood games, play and how the child has been perceived by adults over the centuries. Highly recommended for those with an interest in childhood studies and illustrating how we have shaped many practices on historial ideas and ideologies or just for pure reading pleasure!
