Reader Reviews

The best book on the Wars that we have found...
The World Wars is a well illustrated, visually capturing book that draws one into the awful realities of war. My children, ages 4-9 have literally spent hours looking it over, reading parts, and telling us things that they have learned. It isn't something they will read from cover to cover for a while but it has a lot to hold their interest and keep them learning until then.
