On the other hand, this one is definitely a keeper.

We are about a third of the way through this one, and highly recommend it. Lots of details accompanied by plenty of photographs to keep the kids focused while listening. It is an Usborne Internet-linked book so you can enter the corresponding page number into their website and find further pictures and information.I don't remember much history from grade school days. This book is opening all of our eyes to the horrific nature of the first World War (we haven't gotten to the second WW yet). It seems like one hears much more about WWII, and I'm learning a lot about WWI along with the kids!
This is a little hard to see, but B is making a model of trench warfare using "Moon Sand" (her idea, not mine).

  1. We love books on wars. ANd we were just talking about why there's so little on WW1... This looks like a book we'd like!
