Fun book with silly historical facts. Especially good if your child has already been studying world history. We could more fully appreciate "Should You Shampoo a Pharaoh?", "Which Horse Had a City Named After Him?", and "Did Ancient Chinese Warriors Play Soccer" because we had been studying them. Maybe second grade reading level, I'm not sure.

What did athletes wear at the original Olympics? Which horse had a city named after him? Did Romans eat chips? Find out the answers to these crazy questions in Paul Mason's fun book about history. The book is filled with funny illustrations and asks questions about a wide range of historical events. The questions range geographically from South America to Japan, and historically from ancient times to World War II. Great for any school-aged child who enjoys history or fun facts about the world.
