A simple, friendly first history series aimed at readers aged 6 and up, 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.
Find out why we remember the great naturalist Charles Darwin and his epic voyages of discovery or the famous Gunpowder Plot of 1605, where Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament, or about the devastating fire that swept through London in 1666.
A perfect support to learning about history at Key Stage 1, 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.
Each book features a simple timeline and explores how we find about the past, and all text has been carefully checked by a historian.
