DK Canada’s How People Lived is a great book for school aged children who love culture and anthropology. Payton, 11, loves things like social sciences so I knew this book would be a huge hit here at out house. There is a glossary in the back and this book covers many cultures, ethnicities and eras from cave dwellers to the current times.
You can follow DKCanada on twitter for more information about their amazing book selection. How People Lived got a $$$$$ out of $$$$$ from Payton. I agree because it’s crammed full of facts, history and important information. I wouldn’t recommend for anyone under age 5 and really I’d say it’s ideally suited to ages 6 and up to 13.
Blurb from back of the book –
“See how ancient Egyptian farmers train baboons to collect fruit from trees. Feast your eyes on the spectacular fireworks and dragon dances in medieval China. Watch a viking raiding party preparing for a strike on enemy territory in search of gold and silver.”
DK Canada is a hardcover $20.99 in Canada, 80 pages.
I received a copy of this book for purposes of review. My opinion is 100 % my own.
