A visual history of humankind
by AJ Wood; Mike Jolley
This title for elementary school kids hopes to arouse their curiosity for our world in all of its interesting complexity. It consists of a series of charts and maps on topics as diverse as farming, armor, cities, and technology to name just a few. This book which covers a vast time frame is not a book to read straight through but more one to dip into time and again.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto for this title. All opinions are my own.
