A simple, friendly first history series that takes a close look at some key events and personalities through history and reveals how and why they are still important to us today. Each book uses a rich variety of historical sources, from diaries to paintings, to bring events to life, while simple historical vocabulary is introduced and explained.

I really like the approach taken by the book -- it makes history enjoyable, accessible and relevant. It is well-written and excellently illustrated, and poses questions that will encourage children to think about their learning
