5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for your grandchildren!, 25 July 2010
This review is from: A Little History of the World (Paperback)
A friend recommended this after reading it to her children, aged 11 & 10. So I bought it with a view to giving it to my 12 year old granddaughter, but thought I should read it myself first! I was captivated and only wished I'd been given a copy myself when I was her age. Beautifully, yet simply, told, it makes "sense" of the history of humankind in a way that leaves you breathless. It's so refreshing to read a work of history that, while acknowledging the influence of "great" political and military leaders, does not glory in their exploits and pays appropriate tribute to the development of ideas across the centuries. I'm sure my granddaughter will love it and will hopefully learn a great deal from it.
