brings history to life,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: War Stories for Boys (My Story Collections) (Paperback)
Bought this for my son for christmas. He's 9 years old so a bit hard for him to read to himself so I read it to him. We both really enjoyed it - it's a thick book so it was our treat every evening for some weeks. Having the stories told from a personal perspective really made my son engage with the characters and follow the story in a way he wouldn't have done if it had been written in a "history book" way. It's a great mixture of story and facts and harsh reality of war, bringing it home in a very realistic way. As well as enjoying the story, he learned a lot from it, and it's prompted further discussions. He liked the photos in it too.
