History books are full of the great deeds and descriptions of adults whose names have been passed down for generations. But what about history's children? That question is answered in A Child's Eye View of History. Twenty-one spreads focus on individual children who lived during important periods in history. The book begins with Tuthmosis III, a ten-year-old who took the throne of Egypt in 1489 B.C., and continues right through to Khayakazi Khatwya, who was eleven years old in 1994, when Black citizens were given the right to vote in South Africa. It includes children from all six populated continents and more than three thousand years of events, eras, and empires. Richly illustrated with full-color paintings and photographs, this book will bring history home to kids.
