5.0 out of 5 stars great beginner history book

3.0 out of 5 stars Armour
I bought this for my six year old grandson because he seems to be interested in castles/knights etc. Found it a bit "cartoony" and not quite as informative as I would have liked. Perhaps looking for too much from a childs book. He liked it although would not bother to read it - only looked at pictures!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Armour (Usborne Beginners) (Hardcover)
My 9 year old who is very interested in knights and weapons but has a reading age of about 7 loves this book. It combines photos of exhibits and reenactors with drawn illustrations and reproductions of authentic medieval artworks - I love that it includes these primary sources. It gives a good basic run down of different types of armour and how it was used. Even I as a history loving adult picked up a new fact or two, and it was a good book for my son to use to become more familiar with using a factual book for researching information.
