Children's Literature - Children's Literature
The glories of the 20th Century become irrefutable when you behold the splendors of DK Millennium: Children's History of the 20th Century. The publishers don't skimp on color, photos or facts, so that the book constitutes a marvelous visual overview of the last hundred years and a spectacular reference for children. The book is formatted to show off the century year by year, each year occupying a double-page spread that describes global politics, culture, invention, sports, and science. The complete coverage is equaled by excellent graphic organization. The top of each page is taken up with pictures and short write-ups of major events, while the bottom provides a month by month account of happenings. In 1903, for example we see pogroms in Russia, the publication of Call of the Wild, a cycling race, and Marie Curie's Nobel Prize award. The book ends with predictions for the new century and sums up the past with listings of superstars, scientists and inventors, sports figures, world leaders, music makers, and lawbreakers. 1999, DK Publishing, Ages 8 up, $29.95.

Although written for children, this book offers a guide to the major events of the 20th Century which can be useful for any aged person desiring to have a thumbnail sketch of the Century. It is not childish, but it is simple and brightly colored, and very easy to understand.
