Enjoyed reading this to the kids. They enjoyed the pictures and talking through different aspects of culture in the past. I recommend this for basic information on different time periods and cultures.

This is a good supplemental history book. It helps show to young children that history happened to real people.

My dad purchased this book for me when I was a child. I loved learning all the interesting little facts it had to offer. It was one of my favourites when I was a child.

I read this one to my daughter for her Kindergarden year, and she seemed to enjoy it. Nice to read just a few pages at a time.
