The Blitzed Brits
on 6 February 2005
The books in the Horrible Histories series are fantastic, because they are written to entertain children from 9-13, and are full of facts, cartoons, lists, pictures and quizzes. This book, The Blitzed Brits, covers evacuation, gas masks, bombing, rationing, and dozens of true stories about children during the Second World War.
As a teacher, I think it is brilliant because it makes the children want to read and find out more about the topic we are covering, it can be dipped into and the children are learning while having fun.
