This children's book takes readers on a whirlwind world-history timeline journey, from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Discover ancient gods, revolutions, amazing art, world wars, important leaders, and the great ideas that have shaped human history. History Year by Year is a children's book for ages 9-11. It features timelines, facts, and pictures to tell stories from world history for kids. The "child in time" feature shows how children lived in different eras: explore what life was like for a scribe in Ancient Egypt, or a child warrior in Ancient Greece, or what life was like in South Africa during Apartheid. Special attention is given to complex topics such as Ancient Rome, the Renaissance, Mughal India, the Ottoman Empire, the Atlantic slave trade, the French Revolution, the American Civil War, World War I and World War II, the Civil Rights Movement, the War on Terror, and more. If you've ever wanted to know how humans hunted woolly mammoths or why the Cold War didn't get hot, History Year by Year has all the answers.
