How Children Lived - A First Book of History
How Children Lived - A First Book of History by Chris Rice and Melanie Rice
What was life like for children living long ago?
How Children Lived tells the stories of 16 children living in times past; from Hori, a trainee scribe in Ancient Egypt, to Jack, the son of an American drugstore owner in the 1920s. Detailed illustrations conjure up the fascinating worlds in which the children lived, while photographs of historical artifacts show the objects they would have used in daily life.
