Children's LiteratureThe "Kingfisher Knowledge" series is intended to "take readers into the heart of a subject" and to guide them "through a wealth of information" on a particular topic. In this volume, readers are invited to explore all the ways people communicate—from prehistoric man's grunts and gestures to today's use of the Internet. Learn about the dawn of communication which began long before humans appeared on earth. Read about the development of picture writing and alphabets and how the written word gets from person to person. And take a look at communication today—books, radio, television and movies as well as the Internet which makes communicating with someone on the other side of the world is as easy—if not easier—than talking to your next door neighbor. At the end of each chapter, readers will find summaries of the chapter's main points as well as links to websites, books and places to visit. A glossary and an index are found on the last pages. 2004, Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin, Ages 9 to 14.
