Format:Hardcover
This is a good book for children, ages 7 (although they will probably need some help reading the text) and older. It has the horizontal format, which is nice to share with younger ones, letting the book lay on both of your laps.
It has many colourful pictures and starts out with a list of questions in a table of contents. They range from: Did WWI cause WWII? To what was the longest battle of the war? And why was Anne Frank hiding? There are good maps and a timeline.
This is a useful way to learn some solid facts and introduce history to younger students.
