5.0 out of 5 stars Let your kids live through the 1st world war!, 14 Jan. 2009
This review is from: The Trenches: A First World War Soldier, 1914-1918 (My Story) (Paperback)
My 8yr old son was gripped by this book and no amount of history lessons or educational history books could possibly bring the horrors of WW1 home to children more realistically and emotionally than this fictional diary of a First World war soldier Billy Stevens, (aged just 16 when joining up to fight for his country). I would recommend this book for 8yrs and above (depending on how emotionally mature your 8yr old is). Personally I think, however shocking, every child should know what a huge sacrifice this generation made for them and us. All the main facts and historical events of WW1 are covered in this book and your child will actually feel the atmosphere through the thoughts and feelings of Billy. Also great, (and very educational) read for adults. BUY IT!!
