I home educate my 7 year old son & we use these books in our home ed group. They are great. You learn about the times as well as do a craft activity for each section. The crafts are good, nothing too complicated & they use items that are not expensive to source. Full of interesting facts along side the craft activities mean the history lesson sticks rather than being forgotten. These are a good resource for home educators or just for a child who is interested in history & likes the hands on activities. We have bought all the books in the set.
