To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bright and colourful, easy language and best of all, accurate (whereas I've been surprised by the number of kids books that I've seen that dumb things down to the point where they're incorrect). My kids sit down and devour these books in about two days each, which isn't great value by the hour, but I think they'll go back to them to re-read periodically. I'm gradually picking up the whole set.
Nice book full of bite-sized chunks of history. I'm using it to give my daughter an idea of the scale of history in general, and to spot anything that seems to grab her attention, so I can expand on it through other books. One small gripe I had was the claim that the American civil war was one of the bloodiest in history? It wasn't by a long shot, so it made me question the validity of some of the facts. But that one thing aside, its a good introduction to history for kids x
Felt there could have been more effort put into this book, was disappointed because although the information is fantastic it doesn't really keep you interested and didn't feel it was presented well. It seemed like someone researched all the facts then shoved it on the pages felt like they didn't really engage mine or my daughter's interest and felt that there was more facts than actual information about the people and this didn't really explain alot. Not recommend
