Overview

Featuring more than 1,500 images that bring the story of the past to life through a detailed timeline, this visual reference helps children navigate the influences, patterns, and connections between historical events, beginning with prehistory and running up to the Arab Spring.

Budding historians will learn about the history of humans across the world in History Year by Year. Spreads highlight major historical eras including the Renaissance and the French Revolution, while quotations from primary and secondary sources provide further insight and give proper historical context. Kids will love the "child of the time" feature, which details the experience of children during important historical periods, including Ancient Egypt, Viking England, the Industrial Revolution, and World War II.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Gr 4–8—Divided into different eras, with various ranges of time ("Before History Began," "Really Ancient History," "Much More Civilized," "The Marvelous Middle Ages," "Exploring and Reforming," "Time for Change," "Empires and World Wars," and "Fast Forward"), this offering follows the publisher's successful pattern of full-color pictures, brief blurbs of text, and highlighted features focusing on particular aspects of the broader subject. Starting with "3 MYA" ("million years ago") and ending with "1945-present," each part of the book gives a brief overview of what was going on in different parts of the world at the same time. A color-coded time line runs across most of the spreads, showing the progression and advancement of civilization. Every few pages, a particular subtopic gets extra attention. For instance, in the "700 BCE-500 CE" section, there is a two-page discussion, replete with a color picture of Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huangdi's terra-cotta army. Features such as these make this an excellent browsing book, but students can still pull information from the text. A brief history of both the United States and Canada is appended. A good addition to most collections, both for the information it offers and for its appealing format.—Carol Fazioli, Barth Elementary School, Pottstown, PA

History Year by Year 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This book was purchased for my daughter (a rising 5th grader) to supplement her summer time school readiness preparation for the upcoming school year. The book is very well organized, informative, and entertaining. As a resource, the book has provided a wealth of topics to discuss and has prompted many additional in-depth studies. This book can greatly assist any parents who are seeking a starting point for at-home historical studies.
