Review quote

Library Media Connection(starred review) This extensive volume covers an enormous span of history in an organized, easy-to-follow manner. Divided into four major sections: The Ancient World, The Medieval World, Exploration and Empire, and The Modern World, this book is thorough without becoming overwhelming to readers. . . . Overall, thi sis a great addition to the collection for its breadth of topic and ease of use. Highly Recommended. Through the Looking Glass Children's Book ReviewThis beautifully presented and carefully reserached book presents history in a new way that will show young readers that history does not have to be dull and dry. Quite the contrary.
