Another great resource
on 28 June 2007
I have this book in my classroom, as the period that we are covering in History is the period from 1948 to the present day. (I know; how can that be History when it includes our life time!)
The pictures and sections are beautifully grouped to the decades, and have resulted in many pleasant reminiscence sessions with colleagues. They have also intrigued the children and have sparked their interests.
A lovely book for all those of us who have lived through any of the eras included in the book - and it takes us from the Victorians right up to the 1990s, so that must be all of us (although I doubt if any of us have lived through all of them!)
You'll find yourself going through it and saying "Do you remember...?" or "Good grief! I had one of those!"
You will also find yourself engrossed by all the wonderful illustrations, newspaper clippings and photos.
A priceless and timeless book! (I'm buying one to give one of my class at prize giving!)
